Painting a chest for the event in Chestnut Gardens

This old chest seems to have traveled to Singapore with Air France. It has had it’s turns on it’s voyage. Now it has a new delicate top hand painted with handmade Japanese paper and acrylic. It was a journey to paint the winter landscape on it, but I did enjoy the adventure. Being an artist is about being able to look out of the box. In this case I am almost in the box, yet doing something new to me.Read more

“Singapore from a Swedish point of view”

Thank you Scandasia for featuring our art exhibition at Art One 21, Tiong Bahru “The gallery is quite small, but also very fancy – like a hip place in Soho in New York.

Look in to the camera

    The producer Weiling sent me an email last summer about taking part in a series featuring how it was to be a Swedish artist in Singapore and that it would be a part of a TV show featuring a Singaporean designer in Sweden.
