<i>"Sawasdee kha.</i> I am Chanikan Rujanawate but you can call me Kae as well. I was born on May 24, 1974. I graduated from college with a degree in communications, specializing in journalism. But I never worked in my field. I worked in sales for many years. I have always admired Thai arts so my boyfriend, Tanachai Ekuruchaitep [a Novica featured artist] taught me how to craft a variety of items. <br><br> "My specialty is the design of wall clocks, which I decorate with silk-screened motifs of flowers and elephants, two of Thailand's most renowned symbols. I first began printmaking on tee-shirts. <br><br> "Look at my designs. If they satisfy your taste, they can be yours. Meanwhile, I'll be working on new designs with Thai themes." <br><br> The talented artist is also an accomplished painter.
