My painting combines a passion for movement and colour with my dance persona embodied through the interplay of lines, shapes and a sense of balance. I have developed an iconography of circles and lines observed from nature; these are metaphorically represented in many symbol systems across cultures throughout the world and resonate with deeper meanings and intentions. In Singapore, my home at the edge of the Lower Pierce Reservoir Nature Reserve is a constant source of inspiration with the changing light, storms, rain and sunsets.
