Yeni is a self-taught local illustrator who is inspired by her childhood memories, travel and architecture around the world. "Initially, as a stay-at-home-mum, I used art mainly as a creative outlet. Then I took a leap of faith in July 2020 and launched @yenidraws home products!" When Yeni returned to Singapore in 2018, she appreciated Singapore much more than before. She fell in love with the Lion City all over again. She was looking around for something unique which could represent our vibrant city. Without knowing, everything of her childhood were great nostalgic elements which we can all associate ourselves to. All those memories sparked inspirations for her collection of My Singapore My Home.
10% of each Yenidraws product purchased from The Social Space is donated to Share The Meal, a World Food Programme by the United Nations. As a mother, Yeni strongly believes in using her art to help the marginalised, in hopes to have more happy bellies in the world.
" My artwork is inspired by my love for our city Singapore and my memories as a child. I grew up seeing a lot of terrazzo tiles at my Ah-ma's. Those vintage grills were part of my childhood at my parents'. I hope this piece will stir some good memories amongst us...remembering our roots "
