2020 has been an extremely challenging year for everyone. I took this year with all the time in lockdown and time between lockdowns to focus on my artwork. It has turned out to be the most prolific year of my career and the year is not over yet. This year has shown me what I can achieve when I set my mind to it and stay focused on the goal. Hope you enjoy my virtual art gallery. It ranges from my Chinese Zodiac animals, to abstracts, to portraits to chinoiserie blue and white paintings.

Fun fact. However much i love dogs, I’ve never ever owned one.
Day no 56 of covid-19 lockdown in Malaysia. We have another month of partial movement control. The only joy for me is to go for long walks after being trapped in my tiny apt for so long. What are you looking fowards to? 🌈 ⭐ Sketch of the day no 1366 in my moleskine sketchbook is of Tyson the chocolate labrador.

Hi everyone, today’s pet portrait is is of Hugo the sausage dog. He’s my friend’s dog and my god dog. He passed away recently so this drawing is in his memory.
Dogs and animals bring so much joy to me and I hope you have been enjoying this series. 🐶
I’ve been drawing everyday in my sketchbook since lockdown and it has kept me sane and gives me a sense of accomplishment. The act of drawing is therapeutic and healing, similar to meditation as I have to focus and observe and be in the present for the duration of the drawing. Drawing calms me and declutters my mind.
I hope you will be inspired to start your own creative journey. #BulanCovid if you do so I can drop by to take a look
Stay home and stay creative 🌹

For 54 days I have been in Lockdown at home in Malaysia but my art has not been in Lockdown. It has travelled around the world and has connected me to wonderful people in the far corners of the world.
For this, I am truly grateful. Art connects, art brings joy, art heals.
Join me on a creative art challenge this weekend. Draw or write me a poem about your pet or favorite animal and #BulanCovid.
Leave me a message if you would like your pet to be featured in my daily lockdown sketchbook series for next week. You get to keep a digital copy of the drawing and a link to the art video. Price GBP40
It’s been 53 days since lockdown. It’s hard to be positive during this challenging time with so much uncertainty in the world, so I decided early on to focus on my own mental health and my art instead which brings me so much joy.
Thank you my friends who have supported me financially with these Pet portrait commissions. It certainly has helped 🙏

Welcome back to my pet portrait series. I’ve returned to this as I have realise how much joy it brings to people, not just for myself. Pets are like a family member, sometimes more important than family members because their love and joy to see you is unwavering even during the lockdown.
Sketch of the day no 1362 in my moleskine sketchbook is of Simba the Rhodesian Ridgeback.
It’s a double celebration today. It’s a super flower moon tonight and it’s Vesak day, Buddha’s birthday and his enlightenment. Symbolically today brings a lot of changes and transformation. It is a good time to focus on the positive and cleanse all the negative emotions and energy from our life.
I’m going back to a few more pet portraits because animals bring so much joy, love and positivity especially now, during this challenging time, when there is so much uncertainty in the world.

I’ve been sketching every day since lockdown. I hope i can inspire you to do the same. We cannot control what is going on outside, but we can improve ourselves by putting in the time to practice something every day.
