Thanks for taking a look at my website. My name is Mallica Vajrathon. I’m a retired Senior United Nations Official. I worked for more than 30 years as a political/social scientist in the field of development communication, population education, and human rights. I tutored international staff as part of the world-wide Distant Learning Course on Population Issues organized by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and did consultancy work on Communication Support to Women, Security and Peace for the Office of the United Nations Advisor on Gender Equality and the Advancement of Women.

For the last decade, I’ve been working on my own in computer related art. Using adobe photoshop as the main tool, my paintings tend to be of the following four themes: Sealife, Wings, Flowers and Plants and Abstract. I’m interested in using my art work to promote safeguarding the environment and world peace, and for the preservation of nature’s beauty.
