Biography

Elaine_friedlander_portrait


Firstly, welcome to Nüwa!

My name is Elaine and I am the founder of Nüwa. Arts have been part of my life for as long as I can remember - and rolling up my sleeves to 'make' is second nature.

I have a passion for all things craft, design, painting, cooking, gardening and discovering - and I can't help but seek out artists at every opportunity. 

I have worked in the arts and charities all of my career; from one of the biggest UK Medical charities, through to a local society that campaigned to save a historical cinema building. Irrespective of size of the organisation, it is my ability to connect with others that has driven me forward.  

Nüwa is a marriage of my experience, my passion, and my life path which led me back to Singapore (where I grew up) in 2013. I believe in the power of art to change how people feel and act, because I have seen it happen throughout my career. My vision is for Nüwa to help create a society where choosing to be an 'Artist' is a viable career, and Artists are respected for the unique social and economic contribution they make.
