About Sian Lim
I am an artist based in Wangaratta in NE Victoria. Icompleted Printmaking, Drawing & Painting at the Goulburn Ovens TAFE in2012. Art classes and workshops with various renowned artists over the last 10years, and Art Study Tours to Morocco and Italy, and ‘Artist inItaly’ workshop in Chuisi, have all greatly influenced and enriched mywork.
I draw my inspirations and ideas from the world around me:Nature, landscape, still life and buildings. My art is a response to and an expressionand interpretation of these images. I draw and paint with expressive strokesand lines mainly in acrylics, pastels, pens and inks, and working spontaneouslywith layers of colours, shapes, forms and textures, in a contemporary andimpressionist style. My current works and commissions focus on the beauty, colours and compositions of flowers and fruits, specialising in custom bouquet paintings. I find it exciting and rewarding creating artworks that evoke emotional responses and memories from the viewers.
I have exhibited in Group Exhibitions at the Wangaratta ArtGallery, Gigs Gallery Wodonga, Bainz Gallery Wangaratta, Wangaratta PrivateHospital, Wangaratta Tourist Information Centre, Shades of Art and held a SoloExhibition at the Wangaratta Cardiology & Respiratory Centre (2015) and wasinvited to exhibit with selected artists at the 2014 ‘Jazz & BluesInterpreted’ Exhibition, Wangaratta Art Gallery.
