The artists started drawing from a very young age because of his brother and always thought how great it would be if he could draw as well as his brother. He was raised in a very supporting family and would leave his mark on every piece of paper he could get his hands on, including all the paper bags he could find around the house. The artist appeared in a TV show called Young Talent and continued to draw and went on to do an Art Degree at Silpakorn University graduating in 1996.
The artist's inspiration comes from people, animals and objects he experiences from travel. This includes the time and place as well as culture and the simplicity in their way of life. During 1999-2002, the artist's works were based mainly on shapes and forms. Exaggerated to the point of roundness; females, cats and dogs together with warm tones and soft flowing lines he tried to convey tranquility and warmth. Since 2003, he focuses more on children. The artist is touched by their manners and playfulness especially the hill tribes and children from the rural areas.
