Lucinda Law is a botanical watercolour artist, writer/editor, educator and founding director of WITHIN, a nature-led creative studio.
With more than 15 years in the arts education and design field of study, she set up Within and designed bespoke nature-led creative workshops for her guests and clients such as Chanel, Bentley, Mandai Park Holdings, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, GuocoLand,
She also worked on many commissioned works for Harper’s Bazaar SG/ India, Kate Spade, Uniqlo, Clarins, Melissa, Harper’s Bazaar SG/ India, Clinique, Onituska Tiger, GuocoLand, ICON Magazine, Ecosperity, Risis, etc.
A highlight for her was a commission by Mandai Park Holdings in October 2017, to create a large format botanical watercolour painting, measuring 110cm x 75cm, to commemorate the joint partnership between Mandai and Banyan Tree Holdings. Another was a commission by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in December 2016 to paint the orchid, Dendrobium Norodom Sihamoni, an orchid named after His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni of the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Among her other key milestones was being the first artist to show her botanical illustrations on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar SG in February 2016.
In the same year, she was appointed as the local personality for the social media launch for the new Chanel No. 5 L'eau in collaboration with Harper's Bazaar Singapore where three videos of her art were created - see the full interviews here.
In 2017, she became the first artist in Singapore to be appointed as the Faber-Castell Singapore Art & Graphic Ambassador.
She was also appointed an ambassador for TWL Specialist Skin & Laser Centre, where she was featured in their campaign on Dr. TWL's Women of Inspiration.
Named as one of Harper's Bazaar Singapore's Most Stylish Women of the Year, Lucinda has been featured in the media including Monocle Magazine, Time Out, The Straits Times, Business Times, The A-List, Buro 24/7, Lady Boss Asia, Style Magazine, Female, Catalog, Harper's Bazaar SG/ India, IWeekly, Lianhe Zhao Bao, PIN Prestige and Singapore Women's Weekly.
Her creative spectrum of professional work and artistic practice originates from her versatility in bridging theoretical and practice-led expressions based on a range of contemporary cultural lifestyle issues and topics rooted in art, design, fashion, communication, travel, nature and creativity.
With a Certificate in Higher Education and more than 15 years of teaching experience, Lucinda has taught at arts and design institution such as Temasek Polytechnic, Lasalle School of Arts and Glasgow School of Arts. She has also lectured on topics such as Fashion Journalism, Communications in design and fashion, Cultural and Contextual studies, Image and Text, Extended-Essay, Interdisciplinary Approaches to Fashion and Research Methods in Design.
Her dedication to her field of interests is evidenced by her BA in English Language and Literature and MA in Fine Arts. She served as a senior lecturer at Lasalle College of the Arts where she oversaw the curriculum framework and strategic direction for cultural and contextual studies for the entire fashion programmes for six years. Additionally, she led lectures and research for the programmes for which she had also presented and published academic papers.
While working full time in Lasalle, she completed her Masters in Fine Arts in 2011 and exhibited her first show at 2012. Her main study investigated the relationship between image, text and narratives. Drawing influences from her passion in literature, she uses text inspirations from visual poetry to her journals, transporting the two-dimensional aspects of text forms and interpreting them into three-dimensional "text-scape" installations to create an immersive experience of fictive discourse. Above all, she is passionately inspired by nature history and the time-based quality of nature and beauty.
She has also previously worked as a lifestyle editor in Singapore and travel deputy editor in Hong Kong. She has edited and written numerous books and feature stories about arts, design, fashion, travel and lifestyle in over 15 publication titles.
As an avid learner of new skills, she became a certified florist in 2008 to enhance her appreciation for nature and actively seeks courses to enhance her skills. She is an advocate for literacy and her life-long companions are books. She moderated and curated a series of cultural and lifestyle talks, titled, "The Art of Living" for the National Library of Singapore in 2015 and 2016.
As the Founding Director of Within, she not only manages the business, but also dreams up, conceptualise and, with the help of her team, execute numerous botanical-led marketing and branding campaigns and creative project for clients. She is excited to announce her next creative retreat-her third 'Art Of Nature Journeys" in nature-endowed property and location. Lucinda is working towards more commissions and exhibitions in 2018.
