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 art practice started as an outlet to process and express my experiences through all the uncertainties, challenges and joys of navigating a new motherhood journey with a child born with disability. It also provides a space to reclaim some of the loss of self and identity that comes with being a mom. What started in a place of fear and darkness has grown into an expression of hope and a new path.
My work revolves around the theme of motherhood and Mother Nature.
I am self taught in fine arts and draw my influence from my textured background of different careers as a hairstylist, advertising art director and designer. I am happy to have found love in painting and printmaking.
Originally from Singapore, I live in Portland OR, USA.
Thank you for being here!
