"The 2nd of my ‘My Becoming’ series, tells about the past and the present. Our past may have scarred us, hurtful words may have haunt us… but eventually time allow us to heal, grow stronger in mind, body and spirit. We set ourselves free from the past and focus on moving forward to the best of our future self and be beautiful inside out.
I’m also always drawn towards the symbolism of wings. To me, it represents ‘hope’ and protection, comfort, self-love and free to be me."

A little bit about the artist
Doreen Ng is a graduate of Diploma in Graphic Design and had worked in Advertising as a designer and account servicing for 20 years. Ever since a kid, she has always enjoyed art but back then, being an ‘artist’ was seen a poor career choice, hence Doreen never thought of it any further.
Pursuing back her passion in art at a later stage of her life in 2018 was the craziest thing she had ever done. Doreen thought to herself, if she doesn’t do it for herself, she will never know what are the possibilities that she can achieve.
"My hope is to evoke a sense of joy, magical imagination and quiet wonderment through my art." - Doreen Ng
