I’m so excited to join my first exhibit in Tokyo next month. This is a big milestone for me as an artist. I’ve been busy thinking of concepts and drafting illustrations for the past few weeks. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the exhibit in person due to some pressing commitments here in Singapore. This whole situation is just so heart-wrenching for me.
“Between Us” is organized by the brilliant people at Yellowren Productions. The theme focuses on showcasing connections not just with people but also with our environment. We met Joyce, Jeremy and Allan and we got to know more about their work and initiatives. I encourage to visit their website and Facebook page to get to know more about the wonderful work that they do.
I wanted my work to communicate a few things. My pieces for this exhibit had to showcase something personal to me, something that at first glance could immediately show the theme “Between Us”, something that spoke about our relationship to our environment.
My collection is called “Animals and Cheesy Puns” since it is dedicated to my ultra-supportive husband, Lex, who loves animals and lettering. Without him I would not be the creative person I am today. I’ve come to appreciate cheesy jokes and puns only because of him.
The cheesy puns add a humorous spin to the anthropomorphism of the animals. The choice of using pyrography on wood was made to remind us of how we are affecting the environment. We are quickly burning through the resources of this planet. We need to make a more conscious effort to adapt more environment friendly practices in our lives.
I’m very grateful for the opportunity of display my work together with other amazing artists. To learn more about the exhibit and other artists showing their work for “Between Us” go to Yellowren’s website.

I had made a washi tape portrait for my guest post a few weeks back and decided to submit a silhouette portrait for the MT Everyday exhibit. I was glad that my entry was accepted. Ruth from The Little Happyshop, who is the curator of the event, invited me to teach a class on a washi tape craft. MT washi tape were available for sale on the venue and I did add a few rolls to my collection. What can I say? MT tapes are addictive to crafters.
I had prepared my step by step samples, templates and another silhouette portrait ahead of schedule. Unfortunately I mixed up the start time and was late for the event. I was absolutely horrified. I am extremely grateful that Ruth and my class participants were gracious about my faux pas. I taught my class last Sunday at the Children’s section of the Central Library which is in the National Library in Bugis.
I must say it was a pretty fun day. I had great time teaching the class and interacting with the participants. I wouldn’t mind doing this again.

Make This Project:
I was thrilled when I found out that the Art and Science Museum will be bring the Harry Potter Exhibit to Singapore on June. I’ve been a huge fan of the books and movies and it would be great to see the movie props from all 8 films. There are activities like pulling a Mandrake from its pot and tossing a quaffle.
I can’t wait til June.
- Exhibit: Harry Potter
- When: June 2 – September 30
