I am a visual artist based in Singapore. A childhood fascination to paint grew to a chosen career in art.
I completed a dual Master’s in child development & Psychology and worked as an educator & child psychologist in Dubai, UAE.
A move to Singapore in 2011 gave me the opportunity to intimately pursue my passion and enter the art scene. I began my art career in 2012 and initially trained under the guidance of distinguished artists in Singapore. I have been formally trained at the respected Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore in Western painting.
Initially starting with figurines, today my spectrum of artwork includes figurative works and semi-abstracts. A fascination towards textural additions began in the initial years of my career. It has now become a distinguishing feature of my paintings.
Color is an integral part of my artistic repertoire. The color palette is minimal, bold and captivating. They impart a certain mood and emotion to the work. The elements of design – color, line, form and texture, are used to draw the viewer to look beyond the apparent.
I have exhibited in various international art fairs and exhibitions in Singapore, India, S. Korea, Malaysia, UAE, Vietnam, Myanmar, Ukraine, Turkey among others. My work is in collection of Haegeumgang Museum in S. Korea.
Beyond the art world, I enjoy being with my family, travelling, gardening and being at my hometown.
With my art, I create my own language. The intriguing layers and textures in my paintings are intended to create a sense of mystery. Indeed, textural additions is my artistic vocabulary and gives the work a tactile quality.
The subjects are often minimalistic and capture themes from life around me. It conveys visual cues of an existence that is quiet, rhythmic and spiritual. These often create a sense of nostalgia and brings forth memories of the little things that one often overlooks in modern times. The works pop with vibrant pigments, enriching and enhancing them to create textural triumphs.
