This painting is a reminder of the imaginative, playful child I was. I grew up with my sister in our childhood home in Malaysia. Our parents were often busy at work and so we would entertain ourselves at home by inventing our own games. Our favourite game was to make up stories with extremely detailed plots and characters, and we played them out within the rooms of our home. Our living room was a meeting chamber for the royal princesses, our study room was an office, our dining room was a fancy restaurant in the middle of the lake and the hallway was a secret passage. Every furniture and object we could find turned into a prop - our imagination was limitless. This painting illustrates a child’s world where magic is in every corner and where even the most mundane objects in the room come to life. When I made this painting last year I was really fixated on one problem I had at that time, so this reminds me to lighten up and look around myself, because the world is full of wonder and “life is about many other things”.

Roughly 1 in 4 people in the United Kingdom are diagnosed with some sort of mental health issue each year, with 50% of mental health problems in adult life (excluding dementia) taking root before the age of 15.
To help fight this, we’ve partnered with the amazing Place2Be Art Room programme. They are a pioneer in early intervention, helping schools understand and identify mental health problems, and use art-making and discussion to support pupils with emotional difficulties.
A percentage of our profits go directly to the programme, helping children learn to cope with the world through art.
