Singapore’s shophouses are colourful, quirky and instantly recognisable as part of the architectural fabric of the Lion City. This painting depicts a row of shophouses along Blair Road, however, you can see similar scenes of the bright facades, decorative shutters and Peranakan detailing on rows of shophouses around the city. For anyone who has spent time in Singapore, this limited edition print is a great memento of that time and a lovely pick-me-up for any room.
Deep dark greens depict the lush foliage of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, bright tropical flowers pop out from the foreground, and in the background sits the regal black and white Plantation House, now known as Burkill Hall. This fine art print would suit a variety of settings including an office, living room or dining room, and it makes for a great conversation piece. The print is the middle panel of a larger three-panel print titled The Botanic Gardens, which is also available for purchase.
Meet Me At The Ginger Garden
During my time in Singapore I spent many sunny days wandering through the Botanic Gardens and admiring the bright bursts of colour emanating from the tropical flowers. So much so in fact that I was inspired to create an entire collection called the Botanical Art Collection. Meet Me at the Ginger Garden is from this collection and features an exuberant coral-coloured ginger lily bursting into blossom against a background of pale greens and yellows.
Raffles Hotel holds a special place in the hearts of Singaporeans, as well as many expats and frequent visitors to Singapore. Named after Sir Stamford Raffles, who was the founder of modern Singapore, this historic hotel was the birthplace of the Singapore Sling, a home away from home for royalty, dignitaries and celebrities, and it is now the site of one of Singapore’s most decadent Sunday brunches. This painting captures the romantic facade of the hotel along with the bustling energy that takes place in its foyer.
Perfect for any mother-to-be, this print depicts the final stages of pregnancy when the mother’s body is at its most feminine, the baby is kicking and both parents are experiencing feelings of excitement, anticipation, and perhaps a touch of apprehension for the birth of their new child. This limited edition signed fine art print is part of my Motherhood Art Collection, which celebrates the physical and emotional aspects of maternal love.
