Chin Yuen Art Show
Join me as we celebrate the changing season with hot apple cider and sweets surrounded by the amazing work of international award-winning Saanich South contemporary artist Chin Yuen.

Chin will be in attendance. 

Born in Malaysia, Chin studied in Singapore and England before moving to Canada for further education. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours from Emily Carr University of Art and Design and a Master of Arts from UVic. After graduation, Chin 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 more than 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, corporate buildings, and now it is our privilege and delight to display then throughout the Saanich South community office.

The piece that was selected for the show poster and invite is called, "Winter Spring." Chin tells us that the painting is an abstract version of snow thawing to reveal colours, forms, and growth.
"All my paintings in the show will have the quality of an unveiling as they are all built with layers of colours and details."
