Whee-Teck believes that anyone can learn to sketch and paint. He started painting in November 2011 and has since surprised himself with what he has learnt. He considers himself as one who has no natural talent in drawing and painting. He believes anyone can pick up the skills for themselves – of course with effort and learning the skills.
Due to various personal reasons, he decided to take a year away from work. He pursued his artistic endeavor more seriously and ended up with his first solo exhibition in May 2012. He continued to artistic journey through 2012, where he discovered the Urban Sketching Community. From these experiences, he decided to share his "secrets". His approach as an adult learner, his process and his strategy, Whee-Teck’s “Adult Learning Architecture”.
