I have been creating artwork under the pseudonym

@the_unordinary_motherhood on Instagram since 2016 after my younger son was born with a genetic multi-system disorder called Williams Syndrome - https://williams-syndrome.org/

 

My artwork started as an outlet to process and express my experiences through all the uncertainties, challenges and joys of navigating through a new, unordinary journey in uncertain times. What started in a place of fear and darkness has grown into an expression of hope. 

 

My  work revolves around the theme of motherhood and Mother Nature as they are core in my life. Art also provides a space to reclaim some of the loss of self and identity that comes with motherhood. After prior careers as an advertising art director, designer and hairstylist, I have found my passion as a self-taught illustrator and printmaker. 

 

Originally from Singapore, I live in Portland OR, USA.
