Overview by Instructor
Queenie Kou is a Singaporean artist whose personal art journey began with an interest in drawing as a child. There were no formal art lessons offered in schools during her schooldays but that did not deter her from creating illustrations for her homework at every opportunity.
Amidst her busy working life, she took time off weekly to engage in some form of creative outlet, be it drawing, painting, sewing, jewellery making, pottery or sculpture. In 1993, she completed a two-year Certificate of Western Art programme at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. In 2015, Queenie decided to devote herself fully to drawing and painting, after a long hiatus because of work. She now paints in oil, acrylics, water colour, pastel as well as in mixed media. Her paintings have been featured at several local exhibitions. A certified teacher with the Ministry of Education, her love for teaching has also seen her engaged in art teaching projects in Singapore, island wide.
