Valerie Khoo
Artist. Writer.
Creative collaborator.

I’m a visual artist based in Sydney. My Vintage Chinoiserie series is known for evoking a sense of joy and positivity, with each one telling an inspiring story to help you connect with your creative soul. My other work includes my Flying Apostrophes series, inspired by my love of writing and belief that everyone has untapped creativity that’s waiting to shine.

I’m also the City of Sydney’s Curator of the Sydney Lunar Festival 2019 to 2020, an arts and culture festival that attracts over one million people and is the third largest annual event in Sydney, after NYE fireworks and Vivid.

Interior Design. Licensing. Commissions.

Interior designers: I work with interior designers on bespoke art pieces created to suit your client’s tastes or decor.

Manufacturers/brands: Selected artwork can be licensed for surface design or merchandise. I also co-create images for specific projects.

Art lovers and collectors: If you’d like to commission a custom artwork, I create personalised pieces infused with your specific preferences.

Winter 2019 Collection

My latest collection from my Flying Apostrophes series is now available.

While many people are busy inserting apostrophes into pigeonholes they don’t belong – due to their own misguided assumptions about how they should be used – I wanted to create worlds where they are celebrated. Where they could dance and party – and exist – without being told they aren’t in the right place in the world.

As I’m sure you have guessed by now, the Flying Apostrophes series is not just about punctuation. It’s about belonging. It’s about identity. And it’s about forging your own path in the world when everyone tells you that you should be doing something else.
