I felt so insufficiently equipped, so unprepared, so weak, and at the same time it seemed to me that my reflections on art were correct.
I quarrelled with all the world and with myself. - Edgar Degas (1834 - 1917)


Manjeet Shergill is a Singaporean who decided to follow her inner calling and joined St. Patrick’s Art Centre (now LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts) started by the late Brother Joseph McNally.

Manjeet was among the first batch of art students to attend St. Patrick’s Art Centre. Having completed her course there, she continued studying art with various different artists.

Since leaving St. Patrick's, Manjeet has worked full time as an artist, gradually establishing a following of collectors and clientele, who regularly visit her studio. She began exhibiting her work in 1997, both in Singapore and abroad. Her Berlin exhibition in 1999 was well received.



Shergill Studio was established in 1997 as an independent studio and gallery from which to paint and sell her work, and from where her paintings were regularly consigned to galleries in Berlin, Bangkok and London.

In Singapore, Manjeet’s paintings were exhibited in different art galleries.

In 2003, together with two other partners, a local lawyer and a German gallery owner, Manjeet established the Vermillion Group of Galleries, which was to become an important part of the developing Holland Village art hub.

Today Manjeet Shergill exhibits and sells her paintings, and runs her popular Creative Art Workshops. She conducts these workshops, open to all, and teases and shocks participants with the idea that anyone can draw and paint, and the only thing you can't get in an art supply shop is originality.

Manjeet also manages Goldgoose-Artconsult for projects - locally and internationally.
