What I Do
Drawing Within You is a one-to-one coaching and/or group workshop using art and other supporting modalities to express yourself and draw insights from your creation in a safe space. This form of self-expression and self-discovery provides a gentle yet empowering way to find clarity beyond words that will carry you through the uncertainties that we may face in our lives.
By taking a journey inward through art, you set your subconscious mind free to surface thoughts, feelings, connections and resources you may not have realised that were within you. You might just surprise yourself by the possibilities that will be unlocked as a result of this process.
I believe the understanding which comes from self-awareness and self-discovery will allow you to see yourself and the potential around you in a brand new light.
From past participants
"Wendy is good at conducting the art class combining the use of essential oils. The smell of the essential oils not only help participants feel relaxed but it also help to bring out the inner child inside us as we draw or doodle with our free spirits!" - Judy, 40s
"An opportunity to allow ourselves to focus, rework and discover" - Lilian, late 30s
"Getting in touch with that part of yourself that you may have disconnected with" - Hans, late 20s
"I realised that self-expression through art is not about being a talented artist. Wendy helped me to see that it is about expressing myself and finding a feeling of flow, so that the subconscious knowledge that I didn't know I had, would come to surface". - Joseph C, 30s
"Wendy's gentle encouragement made me realise that self-discovery is about allowing my unconscious mind to control the pencil and my conscious mind to take a break from trying to be perfect." - Juanita, 30s
"Wendy's session opens up a creative process for me to explore the hidden meanings behind my experiences. I came for the workshop without any expectations and was very curious about what might show up.
I tend to censor and filter myself. As marketers, the problem we have is that we may try too hard to come up with a clever pitch, content or copywriting that contain many of our personal blindspots.
During the session, I learnt about some of my unknown filters and biases. When contemplating the art I created, my intensity of strokes and the cold colours I love to use came to signify detachment, objectivity and dissociation related to holding back from fully immersing myself in rich and warm expression. From this, I recognised my fears of fully participating in life.
I am progressively embracing and being compassionate with myself. Somehow, this gradually influences how I write and communicate not just as a marketer, but also as a human being." - Alfred, 30s
"Give yourself a chance and explore, I really enjoyed my session and I am sure you will too."
"The state of mind can shift (from stress to hopeful) as we start drawing, as in the case of drawing out in a stressful situation..."
"Drawing is a great way to know myself better."

Bags to bring home
It is in the early 2000s, that I picked up my paint and brushes again. Through drawing, it helped me in expressing myself better. Hence Drawing Within You was birth, using art as a media to run workshops to help others rediscover themselves.
My artworks have been exhibited in various parts of the world. Formerly trained in graphic design, I paint intuitively and my works are mainly abstracts, using acrylic on canvas. I am also currently experimenting with digital art as I am running out of storage space to keep my canvases at home...
My dream is to have my own solo exhibition one day.
I am a member of:
Women’s Artist Association Singapore,
International Professional Art Association, VIPAA, New York USA &
Fantapia International Art Group (FIAG) - South Korea
"I enjoy the beauty and lightness of being able to express how I feel on a piece of paper, which no words can describe. It has given me peace and serenity during my journey of healing. Having a series of pictures also allows me to look back, reflect and explore the meaning of each image in my own time" - me
