A friend once asked me how I felt when people looked at my paintings. Honestly, it was unnerving at first but over the years, I have since grown a thicker hide, my spirit has toughened and my heart has certainly become a lot stronger. I have come to terms that there will be those who like and there will always be those who dislike. Art is so subjective, so personal, you just can’t win them all. Whilst I have gotten used to the idea of people looking at my work, I wasn’t quit
Here’s the lineup making their first appearance. Present status is WORK IN PROGRESS. When measures are relaxed, I will bring the canvases to HCA for the patients there to work on them. Then, I will bring them back for varnish to get them ready for framing, delivery and installation. There is a story to each canvas, wordsmiths are working on them now. #TGBAG

Many a time, I wonder what God has up His sleeves. Things I never thought I could do, I am doing now. By His Grace, I became an artist. With His Favour, doors of opportunities opened up for me and in the process miraculously, I became a little bit 'famous'! There are many ways of ministry. Believe you me, never underestimate what God can do. I never ever thought my hobby would become money making work and certainly who would have thought that my art pieces could be used to
Today April 25, 2021, all the pouches have been sold. Thank you for your support these past 2 years. There may be a couple of outlets still carrying them, they are probably the last few. I have no more stocks with me. Thank you so much. Under the present circumstances, it is indeed a miracle. The past week, I have sold more pouches than I did in the past year! Counting my blessings, I have indeed been blessed with many SUPER friends. #TGBAG
There is a kind soul who is donating $25000 to HCA Hospice Care for 5 pieces of my work. This is my BIGGEST COMMISSION in my art journey! I am putting everything aside for the next 2 months to just focus and paint these 5 pieces. #150 SUNSET is on hold. Thank God that my client was very understanding. Tomorrow, I begin work on #151 ! Bought my materials today and did a major stock up of acrylic paints as I don’t keep supplies of acrylics, I paint mainly in oil. I spent a big
When I painted the orchid series 2 years ago, it was mainly to continue my series with a new floral theme for the coasters and placemats. I never thought that this piece would become one that would travel so far out into countries overseas and bestowed the honour of being presented as something iconically Singapore. What thrills me, puts me on seventh heaven, have me floating on cloud nine and I am so very humbled is that the prints are ordered by Singapore companies overse
The one feature of Facebook that I really like is "memories". They are stored nicely there, intact, for my own private viewing. This morning, I was pleasantly drafted back in time to a post I did in 2017. I had compiled the times me and my work had been featured in public media.
I thought it a good time for me to step back and do a rewind. And so, I searched my posts.
Here's an update. I hope some of my special clients/ friends (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!)are reading this. A
#146, 147, 148, 149 and 150 Remembrance Series A collection of 5 paintings done in collaboration with Sound of Art Gallery and HCA Hospice Care. 24”x 30” Acrylic I wrapped up my art year for 2020 w these 5 paintings. Done over 4 weeks, each piece tells a story of the seasons in our lives. I began w a remembrance piece of a carefree and adventurous youth, then to a flashback of first love, to building a home with the love of one’s life, to an empty nest but one surrounded with
