Marisa R. Ng Malaysian, b. 1977

Born in Selangor, Malaysia in 1977, Marisa Ng is a full time artist who earned her Certificate Of Figurative Art from the National Academy of Art, Culture & Heritage, Malaysia.  Marisa derives most of her work from the attachment that she felt towards her Ah Ma (grandmother) who suffered from cancer. Having a special connection with her growing up, Marisa describes her fondness of her abstractionist brush stroke as a personification of the way her Ah Ma cooked in the kitchen.
