Alice Yee Yuen Chin

Alice Yee is a delightful, sincere and warm person who impresses with her tangible sense of passion and love for painting which was formerly merely her hobby. She appeared as the cover artist for Expat Magazine in May 2012 and February 2014 and has participated in numerous art exhibitions. 
 
Alice spent her childhood around nature. With the influence of a close-knit group of friends she enjoyed drawing and portrait sketches throughout her primary school and during her teens she started her art lessons with an architect.  Although she has to stop painting to pursue her career but the passion for art has always remained with her.
 
Twelve (12) years ago she rekindled her love for painting by taking art courses and when one of her oil paintings was recognized by the National Art Galley she decided to make painting as part of her life. She is now a part-time artist.
 
Due to the influences of her childhood environment she has always drawn her basic inspiration from nature, human experiences and a variety of other facets of life we all face to some degree. Her art evolves from the love of details through brush strokes from close-up vantages to landscape scenes.  She has a special love and affinity for nature and the way its beauty impacts her.
 
Clouds, landscape and floral paintings are her specialties, especially roses are her favourite subjects using acrylic and oil paints.  She has also eagerly pushed forward her talents and explored semi-abstract painting and animal portraits.
 
Her recent works focus on roses and sky series. She is incorporating her rose and sky series together in her solo exhibition “Secret Garden”.  In her rose series, you can see that she paints with bold brush strokes, applying vibrant colours which brings her subject to life. It is her desire to inspire viewers to preserve the beauty of nature as you start your garden tour in her exhibition to see the lovely variety of blooms.
 
Alice has escalated to a new dimension in her painting style and moving forward to semi-abstract painting for her next rose series.
