Intuitive Mixed Media Artist
Shia Lynn is deeply passionate in exploring all forms of arts and crafts as part of her journey as an artist-crafter. She practices Mixed Media Art mostly in the form of intuitive painting, art journaling, fabric painting, decorative crafts and altered art. Shia Lynn is influenced by the life stories and works of her favourite artists such as Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh, and is mostly inspired by the art of magical realism and fantasy, old world and new age, oddities & curiosities, as well as, art styles like art nouveau, baroque/rococo, expressionism and arts & crafts movement.

Living an Artful Life To date, it has been more than 10 years since her involvement in the local arts and craft scene.

Symbolism
If you are wondering about the logo that resembles a lotus flower on the main page, it is inspired by the name Shia Lynn, which means 'Summer Lotus' in Cantonese. Born as Toh Shia Lynn, she has recently taken on her husband's name and is now known as Shia Lynn Victor, although she is mostly known as Shia Lynn or Shia among her friends or Lynn among her family.  Shia Lynn resonates with the symbolic meaning of Lotus (bloom from the muddy waters) because it represents her tough childhood and obstacles that she has experienced which contributed to her self-awakening and self-actualization journey.
