Senso Art Gallery Café is an art gallery cafe based in Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, Johor Bahru. It was founded in 2017 by Catherine. Senso Art Gallery Café provides a platform for local, resident and foreign artists to showcase their works, as well as enrichment workshops to learn, appreciate and enjoy art.


As the name of the company shows, Senso Art Gallery Café is a combination of an art gallery, workshop, and cafe. We help to promote awareness for the public to appreciate and support artists, especially local artists. Through these, we hope to cultivate a community of like-minded souls, not just for social interaction, but also to help artists support their livelihoods. We seek talented individuals and provide opportunities for them to grow and develop in the art world.


Senso Art Gallery Café also provides a variety of workshops such as Pressed Flower Workshop, Cyanotype Workshop, Painting Workshop, Colouring workshop, and so on. We hope that by participating in such workshops, the young generation will embrace the true spirit of the art lifestyle and can impact the creative scenes in the future. Anyone from all walks of life, whether a novice or an amateur, can unleash their full creative potential.


Senso Art Gallery Café provides several foods, beverages, and desserts that allow people to take a break in this bustling life. We hand-crafted our food to titillate your taste buds in delightful ways, just as we created our space for the complete experience. We also make a concerted effort to find purveyors who can provide value and quality that appeals to our eyes, as well as our taste buds.



Catherine was born in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in 1971. Her interest in arts was piqued at a tender age – and it developed into a full-blown passion for everything to be creative. In her little ways, she hopes to share that familial spirit that puts smiles on our faces and keeps us going with inspiration from daily living.


She finished her Graphic Design at Saito University College in Saito Academy of Graphic Design. Catherine’s experience includes a variety of marketing and advertising opportunities. She has spent 13 years as a designer in an advertising company in Malaysia as well as Singapore. Her position allowed her to practice visual concepts, using computer software or by hand, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, and captivate consumers.


Other than that, Catherine also worked as a gallery curator in White Box Gallery and has experience in teaching art. With powerful creative energy, Catherine successfully started her own business in 2017 by running an art gallery café, which is Senso Art Gallery Café after five years of planning. It has taken her much courage and determination to manage an art gallery café and continue to develop her skills as an artist at the same time.


Catherine is now still passionate about making impactful art that can bring positive vibes to people and improve their quality of life. Her art practices often focus on nature and always incorporate mixed media in her works. She pursues her extraordinary style with great passion and effort and has been improving steadily over the years.


Catherine believes that her art can eventually bring positive messages to the viewer and this is what has been driving her to continue making art.



Senso Art Gallery Café is named after the six senses of a human being. The integration of the six senses with creative art: sight, smell, sound, touch, taste, and feel, is exploring new ways of representing arts through personal sensual feelings and emotions.



We aim to provide platform for artists to showcase their talents, and connect people to art by encouraging, supporting and nurturing local and international creative talents and determined talents.

Our vision is to become an extraordinary and creative platform for visual arts and crafts all around Malaysia and internationally.
