- Doina Andreea Ilies
I am an architect who recently discovered her passion for painting. My love and interest in arts was triggered by my research for doctoral thesis at NUS on aesthetics in architectural education. By researching how artists work and comparing it with how architects are trained to appreciate and create beauty, I became very interested in art and started experimenting with various mediums. So far, I have tried soft pastels, watercolour, inks, acrylic and oil paints, and my preferred medium is oil paint. What inspires me is the lush tropical nature in Singapore, and especially the amazing flowers.
