Under the brand identity “Studio Nez”, her artwork is best identified by her adorable cereal box characters that steal the spotlight in many of her recent works. This character has gone on to become her signature icon that dedicates itself to celebrating everyone’s inner child artist, full of bright colors and a heartwarming message to encourage the imagination within us all.
