The Birth of The Visionary ART Workshop
“Never having had any good guidance myself in the art techniques of drawing, painting & creating,I learnt how to master skills, fumbling through the long & hard way. There is no need for you to go through that! My gift is having the ability to transfer what I know & guide you, the easy way. You can acquire a professional level of art skills through (really) interesting, meaningful, relaxing & enjoyable art classes. .
Art & Design Work Experience
The years of experiences working on her own art & her personal journey, together with her love for learning, has led her to develop an enriching & multi-dimensional art curriculum today ~ blending art techniques with physics, quantum & metaphysics. It is something to be experienced to fully appreciate the essence of the art workshops.
Her passion is to empower students by giving them a solid foundation in art & design principles, so that they are able to use all the acquired art skills to go out into the world being a confident creator & at the same time, to live their life of inner joy & freedom.
Her wide range of art educational repertoire has seen her very successfully guide art students within a prison setting to engaging creativity using multiple intelligences curriculum with young children for over 20 years in two kindergartens.
Education & Trainings
She is accredited by the Department of Education UK & Ministry of Education Singapore as an Art & Design Specialist for teens & adults with more than 20 years of experience in the field of creativity, having guided over a thousand local & international art students to their full human creative potential & to fulfill their passion for learning art.
