Joo Ee was born in 1954 in China, and though she knows some Mandarin and English, Hokkien is her mother tongue. She comes to the Nina to hone her skills in ceramics, her favourite art form, and to draw with watercolour crayons. Her clay designs show a clear vision, and often involve work on the potter’s wheel or abstract designs cut out from slabs. When using watercolour crayons, Joo Ee favours large blocks of bright colour. She worked with a similar aesthetic in her glass work experiments. Joo Eee is also part of the Nina’s dance group. Apart from artmaking, she has a knack for jigsaw puzzles and likes looking at books and magazines.
