I have had the wonderful opportunity to attend and exhibit at so many of the Pet Expo’s as well as Malaysian Kennel Association events (MKA) over the years. The highlight of these events for me, has to be the opportunity to paint the portrait of the prized “Malaysian Dog of The Year” for 2016 and 2017, a Pekingese called Yamme Ya. It was a delight to see him in action in the show ring and I had the pleasure of presenting the owner of Yamme Ya with a 25x25-inch portrait of this gorgeous dog.
The “Saving Wild Lives” group exhibition was my first collaboration with WWF Malaysia. I love the work of the WWF so I was absolutely delighted when they called me to ask me to be a part of their exhibition - stuff of dreams! However, I sadly couldn’t attend the official opening as it clashed with a Q&A art talk I was giving at the National Art Gallery, since both exhibitions where running at the same time. But it was a fantastic opportunity nonetheless and for a cause that is very dear to me.
My first ever duo exhibition, all based on the theme of digital art so I, of course, created a Malaysian wildlife collection for this. Digital painting is an art form where traditional artistic medias such as watercolours, oils, pencils, and charchoal can be replicated using a stylus and a digitising tablet. Digital painting is not computer-generated art. The artist uses traditional painting techniques to create the image directly on the computer.
My very first exhibition in Malaysia and it couldn’t have been for a better cause where it was held to raise awareness of kidney failure and dialysis through a group exhibition called Life Interrupted. I was really excited by all the organisation and planning, seeing how the event would come together as well as the procedures for the official opening. This was the first time I had had the opportunity to see behind the scenes of how an art exhibition is organised and launched in Malaysia.
"Secrets Within The Sketch” Art Exhibition"
Masterworks will be exhibiting a series of sketches by Emma Ingham and Nuno Patricio, with the show set to open on February 15th 2019: https://bit.ly/2SrU1YO
“By exhibiting this body of work the idea is to draw attention to the Masterworks Education programmes. The show promises to be a fascinating look at how two artists approach sketching in very different ways & we hope it will motivate Bermudian students and adults to bring art into their lives."
This exhibition made history as I am the first British female artist to have a solo exhibition at the National Art Gallery and the only British artist selected to exhibit during the prestigious 60th year anniversary of the gallery. This exhibition was truly a once in a life time experience! Sure, it was total madness before the actual event, I even had pneumonia due to the countless hours put into it to make sure everything was perfect. However I would do it all again in a heart beat.
