A former copywriter, Shia Lynn left corporate in 2015 to follow her passion as an artist, a painter and an explorer of all things creative.

Among the community, Shia Lynn is known for her enthusiastic creative energy who mentors budding artists and uplifts emerging creatives. She is also known as the Founder of The Artsy Craftsy- the first Malaysian creative platform for championing artists, crafters & makers since 2008.

Shia Lynn believes that art empowers inner-healing. She utilizes the intuitive painting approach in her art style. As an intuitive painter, imagination and introspection often plays a significant role in Shia Lynn’s creations; she draws inspirations from magical elements, vibrant colors and a combination of lines, textures and patterns. Her favourite artists are Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh.
