About

Hi, thanks for dropping by!

Moods and colours captivate me. I like to look at things for a long time, appreciating the subtle nuances. My works revolve around nature, animals, kids and harmony. They are mirrors of my fascination about our mystical universe. There is no one correct way to interpret my works. It inevitably involves your own thoughts, drawing from your life experiences, and then meshing it up with what I present. I hope they bring you a step closer to appreciating the beauty of our short existence, the breathe of life that we sometimes forget in our busy world.

^^ More About Me ^^
I enjoy observing things like falling leaves in the morning breeze, wild mushrooms on the sidewalk, shimmery stars in the heavens, warm tea on the table, toddlers holding onto their mummies’ hands and the list goes on. Hence, a lot of these are translated into my works.

My Dad studied Fine Arts in the 70s which was an unconventional path back then. Later, his aesthetics and craftsmanship spurred his interest in hand making scaled model planes. He is now running a model planes and helicopters business. Although he has stopped painting, he is still a keen appreciator of beauty and flowers! Yes! He's got green fingers like my mother. He would often send me pictures of flowers he saw overseas, knowing I would be intrigued. My mum, on the other hand, never fails to inspire me of hard work, perseverance and deep inner strength. She is no complainer in spite of the punches life has for her. For that, I felt grateful for them.

I picked up painting at 5 and stopped in my teenage years due to studies and a scoliosis surgery. Later, I knew I came back to this path where my heart lies. I quitted the conventional route and went to the Arts to many people's surprise. I felt I had to follow my path even when facing opposition and doubts. I am also currently helping out in my dad's business as a web administrator and sales exec. I work freelance for candid creation publication team as well.

There are a few artists who inspires me. There is a Singaporean playwright and director who touches me deeply. He is the deceased Mr. Kuo Pao Kun. His play "The Spirits Play" is one of my favourites. Filmmaker who also touches me is India's Satyajit Ray, espcially his film "Pather Panchali". Another great inspiration is Jim Henson, creator of "The Muppets"!

Illustrators who inspire me are Marc Boutavant, Chihiro Iwasaki and Yushihito Takeuchi.

I also like Don McLean's Vincent (Starry Starry Night) and the artist Vincent Van Gogh; though sometimes I am saddened, for if only more people understood mental illness, life would perhaps be different for him... Mental illness is a part of our society. I wish more people understand about it. My uncle has scizhoprenia and I came across friends with this illness too. I hope my art could also represent the peace that all people on this little planet yearn for.

小蓝月非常喜欢抬头仰望星空。那宇宙的奥妙令她既好奇又着迷。诗词、文学、小孩、朋友和家人常常围绕在她四周。她对大自然情有独钟。不管是风中纷飞的落叶,遍布绿野的蘑菇,还是清晨晶莹剔透的露珠,一切都如此美好,如此动人。。。
