home       Vanguard Commission to house a new piece of work in their waiting area Nov. 2017           back to news stories
I was approached by the Manager of Vanguard in Singapore to design and paint a picture that reflected his staff's accounts of Singapore. The whole process was extremely unique for me and very rewarding. Initially I met with all the staff to record their thoughts on Singapore and what were the significant things for them living in this Country. I then translated their accounts and created a mixed media collage, oil and acrylic titled "Reflections of Singapore". I was also asked to design five small paintings to hang outside of each of the office rooms. The titles of the rooms were chosen by the staff "Partnership, Victory, Vision, Trust and Inclusion".
