Artist Bio

Valerie took up painting seriously in 2002 after attending the Alternative Foundation in Fine Art at The Slade Summer School, The Slade School of Fine Art, University College of London, UK.

Working mainly in oil on canvas or acrylic on paper, with paintings in an abstract expressionist style. They are created as a result of her explorations in colour, light, depth, form and texture, as well as inspired by the natural elements, hues and shapes in the environment. She strives for a quiet balance with a sense of mood and movement on the surface, through a unique transfer of energy in the action of painting. Having a keen interest in paper and craft, her art objects also include artist books, papier-mache and collage pieces.

Her paintings have been exhibited at the Singapore Art Museum as well as the National Art Gallery, Malaysia. She has had solo exhibitions at the Substation, Maya, Mulan and Wetterling Teo Gallery, as well as group exhibitions at instinc, Telok Kurau Studios and Jendela Gallery at the Esplanade. In addition, her works have been auctioned by Larasati Auctioneers in Singapore.

She won First Prize in the Abstract medium category, United Overseas Bank (UOB) Painting of the Year 2004 Competition (Singapore) as well as Highly-Commended awards in 2006. Has received a Distinction in the Malaysian Art Competition (2007) and been selected for the Young Contemporaries 2006 in Malaysia.

A Malaysian based in Singapore, she has done artist residencies in Italy, Vermont USA, Iceland and Finland. Her paintings can be found in corporate and private collections in Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA, Mexico, Germany and Sweden.
