I started doodling since young - drawing on wooden walls of our
house(I lived in kampong during my childhood), old sofa chairs and
textbooks . Drawing princesses was one of my favourite pastime then
was in secondary school, art was my favourite subject. I went on to
as a Registered nurse and read law subsequently. I was called to the
English Bar (1997) and Singapore Bar in 1998. Work life and law
thwarted my urge to paint and draw full time, as did marriage and
four children. Family and children are the main focus in my life and
However about a decade ago, I rekindled my affair with the arts by
in a course on Chinese ink painting. I also dabbled in ceramics and
at the dragon kiln in Jalan Bahar as and when time permitted with
children in tow.
In 2013, with the support of my better half and family, I enrolled
short courses to learn more about Western art at LaSalle Collage of
Concurrently, I also enrolled in Certificate courses in Western
Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. Currently, I am studying Chinese ink
I simply enjoy the peace and calming effect as I paint.
I like nature, animals and flowers. Going on long walks and swims
weekly routine .Tending to my little oasis of plants at home
from the daily grind of running a household. Nowadays whenever and
I travel , museums , galleries and art shops are in my must-see
list and I
consciously look out for DIY activities which my young children
participate. I am so glad they find playing with clay , pottery

The pieces of work I am exhibiting made me rediscover Singapore and
Marina Bay region. I revisited the site several times to appreciate
changes and development of the region.
It has been an exhilarating journey so far, and I hope to continue
painting well into the future.
