How did you start your career in art?

When I was studying in the fashion design department, I tried to practice digital painting by myself. I realized that I was really into it so I decided to work in a graphic studio after graduating for a while before I became a freelancer.

Were the people around you supportive of your decision on working as a creative?

For the first period, my family felt that my career is quite unstable. They all work in the business field. But now, they are really supportive.

 

What are some goals and ambitions you have for your future work?

I would like to collaborate with international brands abroad. I want to see my work appear all around the world.

If you could collaborate with any person in the world who would it be?

How would you describe the women around you?

All of my friends, they have their own career path that shows their amazing skills. We encourage each other when we have problems with our work or even in our personal life.

 

Were there any local female creatives that you looked up to when you were growing up?

Actually, the person who I look up to does not come from the design field, My prototype and inspiration is my brother, Kevin Inthawong. He is a  pianist and music producer. He’s been successful since he was so young and he is the person who is really supportive of me from my starting point.

 

Are there any challenging aspects of being a female in your industry?

For me, I think being a female isn’t a problem at all because all of the clients hire me because of my work.

 

Be yourself, just show who you are through your work and give your best to every chance that you get.

Do you have any advice to young women who are aspiring to work in your field?

Be yourself, just show who you are through your work and give your best to every chance that you get.
