Her brightly colored graphics echo fondly held memories; laughter reading the “Sunday funnies”, smiles from simple knock knock jokes and the joy of carefree hearts. Juxtaposed  are her watercolor canvases – lovingly mixed subtle rainbow reflections; awash in dreamy hues, all reminiscent of vintage times – a craft blending opulence and simplicity.

The progression of Pansylee’s  portfolio, launched her into the world of graphic illustration;  as a team-member on  multiple international creative review boards whose campaign emphasis formulated product packaging, marketing and advertising for new products, with cultural significance.  Advancement to her portfolio, came with Muse’s move into the color filled genre of anime; contributing to the cinematic, television and advertising industries of Japan, Korea and the United States.  What does the future hold for Pansylee will she ever stop creating?  She ponders the question and smiles innocently, “Why, I’m still searching for that perfect hue of aqua blue -I certainly can’t quit now!”
