From a very young age, Clement Ooi has loved to doodle complicated designs and often keeps himself occupied for hours, just doodling. When he was five, his parents started looking for an art teacher for him. The teacher, who was impressed by the designs that he drew, said he could develop further.

Over the years, Clement has learnt and improved, and has developed into a “pretty good artist”, says his father Ooi Bee Lam.
