This other blog (see link below) was created to display my decorative items for sale. However as time passes by, the time to paint for sale just eluded me

No special reason as to why I still have this blog... maybe it's just to remind me..... that's where and how I started to be where I am now :)

All items shown are hand-painted personally by yours truly... but now I focus on commissioned jobs. So, I do take orders... but the queue is long... sorry :( .... but if you are willing to wait in the queue... I'm more than obliged to paint for you..... It would be an honour!!!!

Since the last post... I'd completed a few more paintings :) I am of course obliged to show off.... muahahahaha. Anyway.... here goes nothing ..... lalalalalala ;)

These were done on a cutlery box following the techniques of Intarsia..... the cutlery set was done on the inside cover of the box. It was tedious but it was very satisfying...somehow this time around I had a few orders on Intarsia. Also did Intarsia with Victorian designs on 2 cake stands meant to be used as an accessory to display engagement gifts. Now... those 2 were an effort to complete!!! A day each just to set the designs on each tray.... plus a whole week of aching shoulders hahaha!!!!

Tea sets are also becoming a favourite now. Did a menu board and a welcome plaque depicting tea settings. These are for a cafe in Jakarta... now please give me a good reason why I shouldn't be proud of myself??? muahahahaha .... *sigh* my kids hate it when I gloat hahaha... but oh wellllll I guess.... if I deserve it.... means I deserve it la kan?kan?kan?.... so why not huh????

*sigh* that's it for now.... as usual... have a great day :)

Intarsian Painting anybody?

As I was varnishing my intarsian trays, this thought came across my mind.

Although tedious, intarsia is actually a very simple technique to master. It does not require much skill.... just lots of patience and the willingness to spare the time to complete the task. So I was thinking... to those who are willing to give it a shot...why not? Let's give it a try.

So .... I thought I'd run a workshop on this. We'll do intarsia on a tea-box.... at my place....maybe some time next month on a Saturday from 9am-5pm. What say you? I can only accomodate 10 at my home studio.... so please if you are interested... please register your interest here in my blog or email me at

I'll get the sample ready as soon as I finish painting for Lizana... together with the costings and all.... oooooohhhhh I'm already so excited.

Waiting eagerly to your response :)
