By profession, Shia Lynn started off as a Copywriter with many years of experience, including collaborations with several talented graphic designers for exclusive projects. Her style of writing varies from education to lifestyle.


Shia Lynn is the Founder & Creative Director of  The Artsy Craftsy, a Malaysian creative lifestyle brand that is heavily involved in the local arts & craft scene.  It was originally created in 2008 as a homegrown pioneer arts & crafts blog. In 2015, Shia Lynn left her full-time job to focus on her passion and turned the blog into a full-time creative business with an aim to inspire a creative living, making & learning through its content, classes, craft activities and creative services. 

She is also the co-Founder of Uniquely Henna MY and Craft Affair, a passion project where she co-organises curated craft markets to support local artisans and crafters. It has been more than 10 years since her involvement in the local arts and craft scene.


As a 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 mostly art journaling, fabric painting, decorative crafts and intuitive painting with mixed media art. Shia Lynn is inspired by the works of her favourite artists such as Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh and is mostly influenced by abstract & baroque patterns, expressive art & fantasy themes, and art movements like art nouveau. 


Shia Lynn is currently working on her series of paintings and journal collections with hopes that one day it can be exhibited to be shared with the public.



// Symbolism
A name is assigned to someone to be known as an individual, somehow matches his or her personality and characteristics. Naming this website's domain after her own name simply represents her own personality and interest. In Chinese, her name 'Shia Lynn' literally means 'Summer Lotus' 夏莲 Xià lián;  in some parts of her website or work, you might come across an image of a lotus-like flower, an icon incorporated to represent her existence as a human. The colours in black and yellow symbolize the balance of her inner and outer world as an entrepreneur and the other as an artist/writer, or a creative person as a whole.
