5 Local Creative Women Who Inspires Us
1. Takahara Suiko, Singer/Songwriter
Takahara on her first memory of getting to know music “My earliest memory of music composition was when I was 10 years old. I’d use my father’s monophonic phone back in those days and tinker on the single-note playing tones to create my own tunes”. Taken from her interview with NST (July 2017)
2. Sharina Sharin, Artist
She quotes “Art is important because it’s a reflection of our culture, a means of communication, a basis of intellectual discourse and a vehicle for change”. Taken from her interview with Cleo Magazine (March 2018)
3. Nee Wong, Visual Artist/Interior Designer

“not be rigid, and let the creative process create greater things”.

5. Bono Stellar, Art Director/Designer
Talks about how she would cope when she’s feeling down
“I had this phase of ups and downs like most people do. When I have this ‘down’ time, I would go to the beach. I think that’s the most therapeutic place to go and reflect and talk to the wind and the waves”.
