The Story of #ohmymats
It all started with Audrey's youngest child being so cheeky all the time that everyone goes, "Oh my! Meimei!" when they hear about her antics. This led to the creation of hashtag #ohmymeimei which has been used since 2016. Along with this hashtag, Audrey also created #ohmybigboy for her firstborn and #ohmybabyoppa for her 2nd son.
As Audrey was looking for a suitable name for the mats, #ohmymats came so naturally as a "4th baby".
#ohmymats is Audrey's personal give back project. Helping struggling or new artists, supporting special needs and donation of products to generate sales or direct cash donations from the sales of the mats is Audrey's personal mission when she decided to start #ohmymats.
And not forgetting, watching how kids can get off gadgets and enjoy a simple activity like colouring puts a smile on any parent's face.

Quentin is a fun-loving 7-year-old boy who is on the Autism Spectrum. His love for animals became evident when he would bellow “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” and “Baa Baa Black Sheep” with great gusto all day, singing at 12 months before he could speak in sentences. He draws mainly animals, in vivid imaginary scenarios, and always in great detail, all without any formal art training. Farm animals remain one of his favourites, as he aspires to be a farmer one day, so that he can be close to his cows and horses. Elephants and lions often feature in his artworks which are peppered with a host of other wild animals too. Quentin dreams of being a farmer, a zookeeper and going on a safari in Africa, and perhaps his art could one day fund his dreams, if not his therapies.
Quintessa is a tinkerer at heart. Quintessa naturally gravitates towards working out electrical circuitry, building things out of recyclable materials, cooking, baking and assembling detailed puzzles, to express her curiosity and alleviate her anxiety as a child with Asperger Syndrome. Affectionately known as an Aspie to her parents (or an Asparagus, according to how she first heard the word Asperger), she draws about anything that captures her imagination, with her favourites being woodland animals. She hopes that her art can make people smile, and perhaps lead her towards her dream of owning a sewing machine one day.
