Hometown: Sungai Petani, Kedah.
Lives and Works: Sungai Petani, Kedah
My mantra: storytelling through writing, drawing, painting, marking, singing, dancing, playing with the brushstrokes. I am a self-taught artist and eventually pursuit of fine art research degree in my late 30s. I used to have a career in fashion institutions where I started making calligraphic paintings of the people’s wardrobes. The journey has been explorative. From making drawings of the wardrobes, I became fascinated with the paintbrushes in my palm, like I could refresh my vision with the whole new vibes created by these ‘magic wands’. As if I waved the magic wands, the vibes between human, animal, insects and floral became rhetoric. My paintings streamed along the journey from the microscopic to the macroscopic views. My arms competed with the moments of the stories in the ever-changing utopia. Certain scenes of the journey lost neither in narrative nor vibe but vision.
