Hi I am Sylvia!
I am a self-taught watercolor illustrator based in sunny Singapore.
My first foray into watercolors was when I discovered that I could use my child's water-based Crayola markers to paint with. I then went on to buy my first proper watercolor set and the rest was history. Since then, I have also started working with digital media.
I love creating cute animal characters and painting children with whimsical backstories. I also enjoy painting illustrative travel sketches and portraits as well.
I often draw inspiration for my illustrations from telling my children what they call “invisible stories” before bedtime, which are often whimsical and sometimes silly. I am also inspired by our frequent travels to Japan.
When I am not painting, I love to knit and crochet, and am also constantly dreaming of translating my illustrations into crochet. Oh, and I also love making knitted costumes for my kids!
