Yen Magazine emailed me to tell me I made it into Curvy this year. (totally surprised) because it was my first time  that i sent my works to them when i know the many girls try it for years , so I was happy and thrilled to make it into this year's book.

If you're not familiar with Curvy, it's a showcase of some of the best female artists from around the world. It's where I've found some of my favourite artists, and this year looks to be another treasure trove of artistic finds, including : Fumi Nakamura , Kelly Thompson ....
