Mah Yoke Soon
Yoke Soon (b. 1949) has been a member of the Art Therapy Open Studio since November 2018. Yoke Soon often anticipates sessions and arrives early to help set up the studio space before fellow members arrive. While he was initially comfortable with working solely with colouring sheets, Yoke Soon has gradually stepped out of his comfort zone and explored a variety of mediums including soft pastels, clay and acrylic paint. As a man of few words, Yoke Soon works quietly and independently, drawing upon his innate ability to create. Yoke Soon has since returned home in the community and continues to attend the Art Therapy Open Studio upon discharge from the Short Stay Unit.
