Biography

Joey is the co-founder of arts collective, Artist Caravan (AC), which was established in 2008. AC invites creative individuals to travel with them, to momentarily be in a community, and respond to sites by creating works of art. Thus began the exciting period of residencies, collaboration opportunities, events and exhibitions for the collective. In 2011, AC undertook LTA's Art in Transit project and created works for King Albert Park Station.

From 2008 to 2010, Joey was the Artistic Supervisor and sculptor for the artist team undertaking a project at the Universal Studios Singapore, Resort World Sentosa. Subsequently, she embarked on her career as an art educator with her alma mater, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts from 2010.

From 2015, Joey creates light-based art installations. Her investigations focus on the interaction of discarded everyday objects with reflective surfaces with light, to create ephemeral light shifts and other visual occurrences. 'This too shall pass' is a simple yet profound phrase that poignantly defines her practice.
