Celeste Choo

Based in Singapore
MA, Art Therapy
AThR, AThS Registered Art Therapist


Celeste is an art therapist focused on fostering wellbeing and dignity in late life. In her clinical work, she journeys with individuals living with complex, often terminal conditions. These privileged encounters, alongside poignant personal experiences, continue to shape and humanise her practice profoundly.

She trained in psychodynamic art therapy at LASALLE College of the Arts, where she graduated with distinction and two postgraduate scholarships, the LASALLE Merit Award and the ANZACATA Scholarship for a Final Year Master’s Student.

Her therapy and creative practices are rooted in Singapore, her ever-evolving childhood home. In her downtime, she collects freckles, soaks up salt water and seeks stillness with yoga and meditation.

Artist statement

Celeste is intrigued by collective memory, consciousness and social reality, which she explores through visual and material iteration. She has exhibited in galleries and community spaces in Japan, Singapore and South Korea.
