Zen graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Digital Imaging from School of Arts, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University in 2011.
As an artist and educator, Zen strives to share her experiences as an artist and environmentalist to bring about a greater appreciation and conservation of our natural landscapes. Prior to joining SOTA, Zen taught at Anglo-Chinese School (International) for 3 years where she was actively involved in curriculum planning, differentiated teaching and interdisciplinary projects with academic subjects such as Biology and Chemistry. In her own art practice, Zen’s continual pursuit of interdisciplinary approaches can be seen in her active participation in Art Science collaborative projects. She is the recipient of the Substation Art and Science Open Call 2014/2015.
As an active practitioner, Zen has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Singapore and Thailand. In Singapore, she has exhibited with Singapore Art Museum and National Museum of Singapore.
As an artist, Zen is interested in man's relationship with the natural world. Through her travels to photograph landscapes across the globe, she learns about environmental issues and uses her craft to comment on the impact of global development upon the environment. With roots in a painting practice, Zen’s photography practice is mediated through explorations of perspective and composition. As such, her practice today premises the production of the image and often employs digital post-production methods to build upon her film photography.
