About the Artist

Watercolor artist, Coco Bee, is fascinated with understanding the therapeutic relationship between art creation and the mind. After attaining her B.Sc. in Neuroscience and Psychology, she continued forward to her Masters under the Department of Medicine. There she was hit with a wave of challenges that left her in much pain. To alleviate some of that pain, Coco serendipitously turned to her watercolor palette. Little did she know this would be the marriage of psychology and art in her life. Coco’s paints in brushstroke gestures, preferring loose dynamic form with abstract elements opposed to rigidity tied into realism. She films all her processes to capture the magic of watercolors unfolding to life through water. It is through this livelihood of sound, movement, and forming images that have led to a reinvigoration of art and purpose in her life. Art became a powerful yet un-invasive modality for healing. It is her greatest hope that her art practice can inspire the same calm in others and to start their journey of transformation and healing through watercolors.
