I am a Visual Communications graduate with a Masters in Contemporary Arts. I have been teaching Art & Design courses since 2006. I design and illustrate books for young inclusive readers and have produced seven children books with one special mention award to date.
I am a design educator and also
a creative wellness artist hosting art jamming workshops.
Some days Ai Khim will teach and share, and some days she minds her focus on Art Making. If it's personal, you won't be able to find her for awhile... She likes to explore and learn about the ever evolving Art processes. She also believes that READING is good because it gives us wisdom only if you look beyond the words and into the insights. People say that being C R E A T I V E is about drawing but... frankly it is not.
Dabbling across a variety of materials helps her to grow and appreciate things in different angles. Occasionally, she gifts her creative services to design and illustrate books for the special needs children in Singapore. Ai Khim hopes that the books that her team creates will expand globally one day.
