First time I saw many rubber trees and I had to live closely to the trees was when I went for an intensive Vipassana Retreat in Kota Tinggi in 1987. The retreat center was in a rubber plantation. After then, I painted some paintings that I had got inspirations from the plantation, memories and experiences  I had had from the retreats. Share with you a few paintings.

Share with you a pendant that I made incorporating the art of seal carving in the pendant. The words are 流水本无情. meaning relentless flowing water. How do you feel about this new pendant.

Almost 40 years ago, I learn Seal Carving Art and I had made more than hundred pieces of seal carving works. Once I submitted an artwork of my seal carvings in National Day Art Exhibition and it was selected for the exhibition. I was happy about that of course. I made less and less seal carving art when I started working after leaving college. Later I did more experimental art and western painting. Share with you below some seal carving art made by me in the 70’s.
