Arty Gifts For Every Special Birthday

Arty Gifts For Every Special Birthday

Many of the inquiries I get about my paintings and prints are from clients looking for the perfect birthday gift for their loved ones and friends. Artworks make great birthday gifts not only because they are eye-catching and appealing, but also because they can be personalized to the each person’s tastes and can last more than a lifetime depending on how well you care for them. If someone special you know has a birthday coming up, these are some great original artwork gift ideas.

Singapore's Stunning Sultan Mosque by Clare Haxby

Singapore's Stunning Sultan Mosque

One of Singapore’s most impressive religious monuments that has always caught my attention and admiration is the Sultan Mosque set in the heart of Kampong Glam. This striking structure features gold domes, a lofty prayer hall, and soaring towers, and it is not only an important centre for Muslims in Singapore, but also an iconic heritage building that speaks for Singapore’s unique history.

My Guide To Little India Singapore During Deepavali

My Guide to Little India in Singapore During Deepavali

Just before I left Singapore to return to the UK, I attended a Bollywood Charity event in Little India that reminded me of how much I love this colourful and captivating neighbourhood. As an artist, I find so much that inspires here from the vividly hued saris on display in the shops to the fragrant jasmine garlands and exotic spices in the markets, the glittering gold jewellery and intriguing temples. Although there is always something to see in this vibrant part of the city, Deepavali is a particularly wonderful time to visit.

Singapore National Day Art & Gift Ideas

Singapore National Day Art & Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year again in Singapore when national pride is in full force with red and white flags fluttering in the wind and lively events taking place all around the city. I’ve always loved National Day here not only for the fun fireworks displays and spirited parades, but also for the fact that it reminds us of how far this small city-state has come in such a short period of time.
