Valerie Khoo

I'm a Sydney-based abstract artist.

Storytelling in pictures

I am fuelled by a passion for storytelling. Compelling stories drive each artwork infusing movement, texture, and imagery on the canvas.

I predominantly create abstract paintings, often for commissions from individuals and commercial organisations who want bespoke artwork for specific properties. I also create original artwork drawing heavily on emotions, experiences and the creative process.


For bespoke commissions, I undertake comprehensive research and create artwork that incorporates aspects of the individual/organisation and their journey into the future.

For original artwork emerging from my raw artistic process, I often draw on my background as a writer. My current series ‘Flying Apostrophes’ exemplifies this. I am inspired by themes based on visceral human experiences and responses – highlighted in my upcoming ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ series.

Commercial commissions

I’m passionate about creating artwork for commercial premises. I work closely with interior designers, business owners and founders to develop custom pieces that imbue the vision and ambitions of the business.
