Yiling, an aspiring amateur artist from Singapore, initially harboured dreams of pursuing art education after her formal schooling. However, practical considerations led her to set aside those aspirations temporarily.
Over the last 20 years, Yiling’s life journey took her through five different countries before returning home to Singapore. It was during this phase of her life that she had the fortune of discovering the NAFA-certified Oil Painting course, led by the talented Raphael Koh.
Embracing this opportunity, Yiling is now on a journey of exploration and learning, delving into the world of oil painting. She considers herself fortunate to have found her passion for art, even if it came a bit later in life.
Yiling’s artistic aspiration is to translate the beauty she has encountered during her travels into paintings that resonate deeply with her audience, evoking a visceral connection and appreciation for the art she creates. Her artistic journey, though delayed, holds the promise of exciting artistic expression and discovery.
