On impulse I attended the Sunday mass on 15 October 2017. To my delight, the priest was celebrating his 50th year of service. A very special mass, I was very blessed to be there.

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. A good artist lets their intuition take them wherever it wants to.” Lao Tzu
As an artist and a designer, my artwork is influenced by my architectural education and the great lecturers I had during my formative years. Late Professor Jennifer Taylor introduced me to the Modern Movement and gave me the understanding and passion for minimalist concept, especially Mies Van Der Rohe's "Less is More" and "God is in the Details". Professor Adrian Snodgrass nurtured my keen interest for symbolism in arts and designs with his wealth of knowledge in Asian, Islamic and primitive arts and architecture. Professor Tone Wheeler gave me the joy of design, the awareness and sensitivity for sustainability and environmental issues. All three of them, particularly Professor Wheeler, ignited the wanderlust seeds planted by my adventurous father
Upon graduating, my first mission was to travel the world to broaden my artistic horizon. With that in mind, I landed a job in the airline industry. With exposure to people from all walks of life around the world, I developed the interest for social and cultural diversities. During this time I completed my postgraduate study. Following an injury to my right hand, I embarked on a spiritual journey which expands my intuition and the opportunities for more meaningful travels both worldly and spiritually.
When you commission an artwork, a design or illustration from me, each will be intuitively crafted from a wide range of life journeys and travel experiences, especially for you.
Currently based in Germany, I am fulfilling my wanderlust as a digital nomad. There is nothing more valuable than experiencing a place with a local. Most of the time, I am blessed with the opportunity to visit local friends. Each journey is a unique enrichment for my mind, body and spirit. Follow my most recent journeys here.

As an emerging artist, I suffered a spontaneous lung collapse in 1988. A work injury to my right hand in 1996 left me with compromised fine motor skills, constant pain, numbness, and pins and needles. With years of personal development as a spiritual healing teacher, I experience some improvement in my fine motor skills.
