About the Artist

“I celebrate beauty and manifest my playful imagination through painting. My abstract creations are windows to inventive landscapes that offer me and viewers beautiful spaces to find relief and inspiration.”

International award-winning Canadian painter, Chin Yuen, was born in Malaysia.  She studied in Singapore and England before moving to Canada for further education. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors from Vancouver’s Emily Carr University of Art and Design and a Master of Arts from the University of Victoria, Canada.  After graduation, she moved to Japan and Italy, where she taught English and Fine Arts for several years before returning home to Canada.  Yuen continues to travel extensively for work and pleasure.  She sees her diverse cultural exposures as an artistic asset that, combined with her love of imaginative inventions, inspires and shapes her creations.  For over 20 years, she has exhibited internationally. Her dynamic abstract paintings are on the covers of international textbooks and the walls of residential homes, hotels, health care centres, and corporate buildings.
