Betsy Toh was a recipient of the Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal Award for 2001–2002. Betsy previously specialised in teaching ‘O’ Level Art at, amongst others: Pierce Secondary School; Pei Hwa Secondary School; and, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, Singapore. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (1st Class Honours in Visual Arts) with Diploma in Education from Nanyang Technological University/National Institute of Education. Though devoted to her teaching assignments, Betsy continued to be active in her own art practice. She was one of the four artists who participated in a time-and community-based collaborative art project titled Blk 124 Kim Tian Place in Nokia Singapore Art 2001. The project involved interaction with the public and received overwhelming response. A versatile artist, Betsy has explored various issues in her work and has exhibited her installations and photographic works in Singapore.
After leaving MOE as an Art Teacher, Betsy started Knotty Bicsie 13 years ago through a series of “happy accidents”. She started off selling her unique crocheted baby booties and amigurumis as gifts. Gradually, her fans were inspired to learn the skills too, and she started conducting classes 11 years ago. With support from her fast-growing Knotty Fan Club, Knotty Bicsie has blossomed from a humble, cosy home-studio to her current creative space at Vertex.
Besides being a people-person, Betsy is a lover of nature and animals. She draws much of her inspiration from her delightful 9 year old daughter and her adorable 2 year old pet chinchilla. For this year’s Singapore Teddy & Friends Show, she will be creating a series of Forest Spirits and Forest Creatures. For the first time, Betsy will be using mixed media in her Limited Edition soft sculptures. Also, for the first time, Betsy will be bringing along with her third batch of Amigurumi Artists from her annual Amigurumi Artist Incubator Program to showcase their creative works made during the course of a 3 and a half month program.
Come see her Creations and gain an intimate glimpse into Betsy’s whimsical dreamscape!
