Pauline Phoon aka Phoonies is a Singaporean artist who studied Art in school and has recently revived her love for drawing. Currently a social entrepreneur working with youths, sketching is the quiet space for her to reflect and process. She is drawn to the simplicity of lines with minimal colours, a contrast to our complex world. Besides ink, she also uses pencil and acrylic while experimenting with other mediums. Largely monochromatic, these sketches evoke a sense of nostalgia, reminding Singaporeans of how far the nation has come.

Here is the collection of her sketches. Some physical locations where you can see and purchase her drawings:

2023 Single Sketches

Emerald Hill

New Zealand

I went on a 3 weeks vacation to New Zealand, covering both North and South Island. The longest trip I made after COVID. The beauty of the land fills me up thoroughly. Side fact, New Zealand in its most native form has no animals, only insects and birds. Animals were introduced to the land by humans. How amazing!

Bible-Based Reflection Works

My faith in Jesus Christ is guides my life. The Bible is the source of wisdom for living life. Sometimes I put it into visual to help myself process what I am learning and going through. 

Almost Mirrow Series

Not the usual mirror reflections. =)

Sheep 23 Series

This is one of the rare moments I painted. I was fixated on sheep since Dec 2022. For my Christian friends, Psalm 23 became the main meditation since. So I crossed into 2023 with sheep in my head. It only occured to me late Jan 2023 that Psalm 23 aligns with the year 23 as well. I don’t usually paint at home as I don’t like wet mess in my home but this time the desire to put this visual in my head on canvas is stronger. A deeper sharing of each painting can be found on my Facebook and Instagram
