'My interest in drawing and painting began as a child but I started painting seriously about 20 years ago.  I paint in a variety of media, including watercolour, acrylics, pastel and mixed media. Although I have developed my own technique over the years I am always experimenting with new ideas and get hours of sheer fun and pleasure playing with colour, shapes and texture. I am also open to learning from other artists. Some of my paintings reflect my Malaysian background and I often paint using bright vibrant colours.

I have exhibited extensively over the years. I have sold numerous paintings and it gives me a real buzz to know that others appreciate my work. I will be paricipating  in The Warwickshire Open Studios with two other artists this year as "Artists at Sheep Dip" and am the current treasurer of the Coventry and Warwickshire Society of Artists'
