I was born in a country in Borneo. I was born on an island. Most of the time, I try to get out of that island. But I always find myself being placed on another island.

I was born in a country in Borneo. I was born on an island. Most of the time, I try to get out of that island. But I always find myself being placed on another island.

I am a woman who worries about many things, but what I concern myself with most is the question of Home. I was raised in Borneo and therefore have come to know the place very well. When I left it for the first time (to do my BA and my MA), I couldn't help but feel homesick and yearn for my next flight back. But after being away for so long I couldn't help getting attached to that other island. I have so many wonderful experiences outside my country. Now that I am back in Borneo, I can't help but wonder where my home truly is. Read Less

My work is influenced and inspired by the places I've gone, the food I've tasted, and the people I've met. I suppose this is one way for me to find out where I truly belong. I believe these influences bring some character into my work, which isn't perfect - and I don't intend it to be.

The pieces I've worked on before 2009 are strongly based on the subject of Home; a topic which I often found myself having issues with in my personal life. I did not manage to create any pieces in 2009 as I was doing a lot of research in Art History for my MA. The projects done in 2010 (which was the year I started work as a high school art teacher) onwards are mostly work that has been commissioned by my employers. Read Less
