Paintings – Acrylics

When we lived in Singapore, there was a great place near Istana Park called My Art Space which offered painting lessons. After talking with the NUS President Chor Chuan Tan about his paintings and how he takes painting lessons, I got inspired. If Chor Chuan can fit art into his schedule – surely I can!  So I enrolled in painting lessons at My Art Space ( – and learned a bit about acrylic painting. I worked in oils when I was young, but acrylics are easier to work with and dry fast. So I started painting again and found a day a week (on average) for art lessons. 

Since returning to California, I have set up a small art studio in the corner of our kitchen. It has great natural light from our California sun and is a nice way to create in the middle of a busy schedule. Since returning to California, I have managed to do several more paintings, and I look forward to focusing more on art in the coming months and years.  I even enrolled as an art student at the local Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD), where I have taken courses in drawing and two courses in oil painting. Some of the recent works from my LCAD classes are also included. 

Here are some of my recent paintings done in Singapore, and now in Aliso Viejo. Enjoy!
