Tears of JOY

Two pieces of great news to share with you today. First of all, my works are being featured again! I am so honored to have two of my works featured along side other beautiful works on Indie.Tea's pretty blog. Thank you, Joyti! :)

Second piece of good news; Dollgift and Byrheea merchandise is now available in another retail outlet, Forest N Trees. This is no ordinary stop.. it is an exclusive store in Singapore that carry a full range of Carrie Chau, my idol's merchandise! Yes, I will be selling my works side by side with Carrie Chau's! I can't contain my excitement, I want to laugh and cry at the same time! lol (sob sob)..

Now I'm going to show you why I love this Artist so much.

About The Artist:
Hong Kong artist Carrie Chau claims that she can draw with both hands at the same time so that she earns a living at double speed and has more time for sleeping! Carrie believes that she has a past life as an alien on another planet, which is why she has difficulty communicating with human beings in this life. Her works depict the daily life as funny, positive, with an eerie touch of delicacy. Through her drawings and 3D sculptures, she represents swollen and joyful characters, and seems to be inspired of jumping jack, fairy tale where angels, imps, and all the animals from Noah’s Ark. “Sometimes I’m inspired by fairy tales; I like fairy tales such as Blue Beard, The Emperor’s new clothes. But not the Cinderella, snow white or such kind of story, too “sweet” for me.”
