My work is highly personal, and made relatable by how I missed my 3 daughters during this pandemic. It inspired me to create these 3 art portraits. I used palette knife to get the best texture and different colours that suits on their personal taste. It represents that women are at the forefront of the battle against the pandemic. Women seem to have stronger immune responses even though reasons are not entirely clear.
I set them as an example and proven that they are survivor and learn more things themselves during these crisis.
Art is a unique way of representing ourselves, expressing thoughts and ideas. It is a personal touch of sharing experience and emotions. It is the communication of concepts that cannot be portrayed by words. I set an example by continuing to be an student of art, by teaching and learning. As an artist that is thirsty of knowledge, I am constantly looking for ways, to improve myself and my works.
I am a firm believer that if we try do our best in everything that we do, the world will also give the best back in return. That's exactly what happened to me when I first joined art jamming classes in Malaysia. I did not know anything about painting before, I just joined because I was just looking for an occupation and immediately started liking it.
Numerous attempts of making a perfect piece is what I strived for. Every struggle and hardship was worth it because I have found my destiny in live by creating pieces of art. By just using simple materials I found that I could turn them into precious crafts and that has build my pride over the last years.
I feel an immeasurable joy whenever I finish a piece and it makes me so happy to that I also make other people smile whenever I show or post a fully "commissioned" painting.
If I had to sum up my art philosophy in one sentence, It would be the quote from Ralf Emerson that " Every artist was once an amateur" this quote inspires me to work harder everyday
improve my skills by practicing, reading and viewing.
I express myself through making figurative paintings. My focus are paintings with women subjects which intend to empower more women like me.
I came from a poor country. In most cases we are judged by our race, religion and appearance. That inspired me to use my talent to show the world that we can all be equal if we will allow it. That through painting we can see different perspectives, different angles, different minds but one heart.
I learned how to paint when I’m already 42 years old. I believe that there’s a reason why God has given me a talent that in my life, i would ever imagine possessing— Motivation. I would like to be an example to all women of my circumstance to NEVER stop finding your motivation. Life will workout if you don’t give up.
Never look at yourself and think that you can only do a certain thing inside your cage. You can always find the key and open the lock.
I want you to know through my pieces how it seems to be when you already get out of the cage.
I never stop exploring for new materials, textures, palettes like how we should be in life. What fascinates me about my artistic medium is to pull the viewer into 2 different views. I do glow in the dark theme because it shines like hope during dark times. A reminder of my advocacy, to find something when there seems nothing.
It also lead me to do different kinds of approach according to my mood. I don’t want to confine myself in one particular approach because I believe art should be about removing boundaries. Exploration.
