Started her artistic career in the United States with her fellow artists friends, Amy is now making a good progress on group and solo shows in Malaysia. As an oil painter, she loves to utilize generous and unsuppressed oil paints using a combination of techniques including finger and knife that allows her oil painting to appear impressionistic with thick texture almost a 3D effect by looking at certain angle.
 
She started sketching and drawing ever since she can remember. As a teenager she loved to write, draw and engage in scrap--?booking, some of which are still kept till today. As early as
6, 7 years old, her siblings promoted and sold her sketches to friends at school. She continued drawing in primary school and in while college doing her Degree in Business Admin and whenever she had a chance while being attached to a Multinational company.
Throughout these periods she learned arts and mastering painting skills by following and attending workshops conducted by International artists.
