Australian Photographer, Abstract Artist and Dentist
For the past 55 years, I have made a point of following my inspiration while chasing my life dreams. Art has always fascinated me as a child, and I loved drawing and painting.
Visual creativity fascinates me and it is a passion can’t help but follow. This fascination with art, artistic inclination and visual creativity led me in adulthood to be more passionate in cosmetic dentistry. I have been able to use this talent to help countless patients enjoy the smile they dreamed of—and now I aim to make people smile as a valuable piece of artwork. I find it personally rewarding and fulfilling to see the impact of the smile makeover I have made on my patient’s live – those beautiful smiles in which they are happy and proud of. It is a reward that money cannot buy!
Outside Dentistry, I love doing volunteering works overseas and my recent travel was giving free dental treatment at Kopan monastery in Nepal.
I began photography as part of my dental practice when I purchased my first DSLR camera to take before and after photos of my patients. The Olympus 5 megapixel camera was top of the line at the time way back 20 years ago, and I considers it a great investment in my dental practice because it allowed me to capture my patients’ satisfied, improved smiles. So my journey into photography began. I first became interested in photography when I attended a short photography course in Melbourne in August of 2015. I quickly realised that, while I lacked theoretical knowledge, my passion and natural affinity for visual creativity more than compensated. Years of painting and drawing provided me with a solid foundation, and I have experimented with various media. I have won nearly 50 photographic awards for my black and white photographs, both locally and internationally.
I love taking photos to tell about people, daily life, or a culture.
I have been fascinated by abstract art and the creation of beauty since I was a child, when I recalls having a strong desire to discover new ways of creating and expressing beauty in all of its forms. However, I now realises that as an adult, my focus on my career and the pursuit of excellence in my professional life was quite narrow for many years. I pursued my dream of providing the best personal, customised service to my patients, and I derives great pride and satisfaction from providing them with excellent results. I sees this as yet another aspect of my lifelong pursuit of beauty: the advancement not only of cosmetic dentistry’s aesthetics, but also the resulting effect it has on my patients’ self-esteem and confidence.
Dreaming of travelling more to remote places around the world one day and doing more dentistry volunteering works.
My strong passion for travel and photography, lead me to found Heart & Soul Whisperer Art Gallery in 2017. I am proud that my photographic works have garnered recognition and an impressive number of photographic awards, locally and internationally.
Growing up, I have always been amazed by the beauty nature provides us with everyday and everywhere, but understanding this beauty has yet remained a mystery. I have come to realize that beauty is meant to be “enjoyed”.
But some of us rarely have time to enjoy this beauty because of our busy schedules. Nine to six jobs do not allow some people wake up to catch the early morning sun rising in the East and gradually spread across the sky. There is no time to feed art-starved souls anymore.
Photographs never lie nor change. In a bid to help all lovers of nature quench this burning thirst for enjoying beauty, in 2017, I founded as a passion project, the Heart and Soul Whisperer Art Gallery.
Being determined to chase my dreams has always inspired me. One of her biggest dreams was to colour and spark the creativity in as many lives as possible with her art. With Heart and Soul Whisperer Art Gallery, this dream has been fulfilled. Just as I have sparked the creativity in mine, as you visit my art gallery, I hope to bring to life the creative artist in you. Bring alive the artist in you. When you see a photograph from my art gallery, let your imagination run wild and feed that art-starved soul!
She is also pet mum of two sphynx cats name Zucky and Zooky.
