Clarissa is a Malaysian born visual artist based in Singapore. She describes her art as a process of self-reflection; drawing inspiration from her personal growth as a mother and as a self-taught artist. Currently, she is drawn to exploring themes related to identity, feminine emotions and motherhood.
Her paintings and drawings feature repetitive marks, patterns and clashing block colours. All these elements co-exist both intuitively and intentionally, radiating a sense of freedom, escapism and otherworldly. She works with a variety of mediums including acrylic, water & alcohol-based markers and digital. To-date she has participated in group shows in Singapore and Malaysia.
Clarissa has a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication. She was in the advertising industry for almost a decade in Kuala Lumpur before moving to Singapore in 2016.
