"I hope to bring smiles through my art and perhaps make the world a place, with slightly more laughter and joy."


About the Artist.
Versatile and whimsical in her approach to art, Yin teen's portfolio showcases artworks in various mediums characterised by strong colours and accentuated with bold brushwork – such boldness evidenced by trademark paint splatter on the artist whenever she paints.

Yin Teen spent more than a decade in a successful corporate career but decided to leave it to pursue her passion for the arts. She has not looked back since. Her prior corporate experiences gives her painting style a different dimension.

Through her paintings, she hopes to bring smiles to faces and to fill the world with slightly more laughter and joy.

"Vroom Vroom", Oil & Arcrylic

How do you get started in creating art and how does it enrich your life?
Loved art from young and was “the girl who could paint” in class.

However, I did not pursue it until recent years as was caught up in pursuing “sensible corporate career”.

It is amazing when you focus your energy on doing something that you love. Even more amazing is when you realised you can get paid for it.

"Super Sheep", Oil

What are you trying to communicate with your art?
I hope to bring smiles through my art and perhaps make the world a place, with slightly more laughter and joy.

Tell us what plans you have for your art future?
Lots, but I will rather not dwell on plans in the future.

To me, it is more important to create with passion in the present moment.
