Biography / Company Profile: 

I come from Singapore and though I have been living in this country for 18 years, I still miss the sun and heat, so in my paintings, I try to capture sunlight.  

My latest series of work - Parklife - is based on a very short period of time each year, when the sun is shining and the days are long.  We are all happy and all is good and right in the world. We rush out to the parks: we have picnics, we walk the kids and dogs, we cycle, and of course what is summer without the endless games of cricket?

The park dominates each work and all animal or human activity is merely suggested.  You have to look closely to notice the transient activities - as if they were fleeting moments in time, contrasting with the permanency of the trees.

In 2012, I became the first local Artist in Residence at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham.
