A former scientist (PhD in Molecular Biology) and a current artist (MA Fine Art), Isabelle eagerly mixes the two in her daily life.

Isabelle has been teaching drawing techniques in International Schools and privately for over 9 years. She has also designed children’s workshops for museums (ACM, NMS and SAM) and the STPI, as well as adults workshops with the nurses of SGH.

Isabelle’s own art uses a variety of techniques, from drawing to sculpting with paper, book-making, watercolors… depending on the topic at hand, Isabelle wants to be able to choose the most appropriate medium to answer the question. Most recently, her work has included  video-making and performative lectures, as media best suited to answer her current questions. Isabelle’s art can be viewed on her artist website.

  1. Hi Isabelle, I’m writing from local women’s magazine Simply Her. I’d love to feature your Recycling workshops in our Mar08 issue in a short activity write-up for our FAMILY section. I have the neceesary information from this website already. Is it possible to send me a few of your lovely photos (high-resolution) of the recycled toys you have made to be used for the magazine feature? Thank you and hear from you soon!
