PROFILE
Aaron is a practicing Ceramic Artist residing in Singapore.

He received the prestigious EDB-Lasalle INTECH Grant in 1989 through the recommendation of the late Brother Joseph McNally (then Director of Lasalle-SIA College of the Arts) to pursue his under-graduate studies in the U.K.
 
Upon graduation with B.A (Hons) in 1991 from the School of Design, Staffordshire Polytechnic (now Staffordshire University), he returned to Singapore to head the Ceramics Department at the LaSalle-SIA College of The Arts between 1992 and 1996. He was facilitator for the Ceramics program from Foundation Studies right through to the Specialization levels where students major in this field of study.  Thereafter He conducted private pottery classes, and also taught part-time at the NIE (Nanyang Technological University) between 1997 and 2001. 
​He is presently involved with his own professional practice and at his ceramics studio producing artwork for commissions and his exhibitions.
