A B O U T
Jamie is an arts manager whose research interest is in the preservation and documentation of heritage, finding a way to let the past live in the present. She is drawn towards creative placemaking and strives to prove the importance of the self.
As an embroidery artist, Jamie seeks to immortalise words in thread. She has always been enamoured by books and literature of every genre. Jamie draws most of her inspiration from the likes of Sylvia Plath, Maxine Hong Kingston and Margaret Atwood, although she holds a special place in her heart for Singaporean works like Alfian Sa’at’s Arithmetic, Alvin Pang’s What Gives Us Our Names and Boey Kim Cheng's Between Stations. Jamie prizes process over the end product in her works and the medium of embroidery draws her closer to her grandmother.
Seeking another creative outlet, Jamie is now learning to work with various printmaking techniques on a project to document personal histories.
Jamie lives and works in Singapore although her soul yearns for the Californian sunshine.
