THE FOUNDER AND DESIGNER
Jack loves plants, so a close friend Angel bought him some plants and cacti from Cameron Highlands. “I was awestruck the moment I saw those succulents. I would never have imagined those shapes, forms, and colours would appear on plants!” exclaims Jack. It was at that precise moment when he discovered that they were indeed real that Jack knew he had signed up for a lifetime commitment. It was during Jack’s college years that opportunity arose, to create something related to plants. As it was for a class on “settingup-a-shop” conducted by Amy Ng from Pikaland, Jack also had to think of ways to sell his creations. “Thus, Jacktus and everything that came after was born,” says the designer-cum-illustrator who designs whimsical pots based on the shapes of differing succulents and cacti. In a way, the cacti completes the design of his pots. Jack may be a designer for his day job, but he is also an illustrator and writer once he gets off work.
