Lim Khim Katy - Available
Lim Khim Katy draws her inspirations from life experience and interactions with ordinary people, many of who have endured hardship and suffering. “My paintings come from the feelings generated from the life around me, from people’s eyes, gestures and the individual emotions they express. "Initially, I preferred watching the emotions that were expressed on the faces of people who endured difficulties, because there were so many of them in Vietnam,” she said. “Whenever I experience ‘artist’s block’ I take a walk or travel and observe people and it’s the best inspiration I can ask for in my work.”
Capturing a person’s eyes in her figurative work is what's most important for Katy. For her, eyes are the gateway to the soul. “When I look into people’s eyes I believe I can understand them and relate to their stories.” Katy’s paintings of nostalgic village homes and colorful landscapes express both strong emotion and great tranquility and compliment her often melancholic portraits.
Katy is available for commissioned portrait painting. Please contact us for details.
