Having been illustrating since 2001, Lim-Lim brings you a world of fantasy and intricate delight through her designs combining symbolism and a quest for universal truth as her motivation.
￼At college, Lim-Lim was very technical in her artistic expression, drawing only very architecturally and accurately, with her subjects usually buildings, people and insects. She was fortunate to train in her late teens with an etymological illustrator and could easily sit for 6 hours drawing intricately follicle by follicle a butterfly’s wing. In her early 20’s she embarked on a more inward journey and started to create heavily from her imagination and knowledge of world symbols that transcend the man made borders that we know. This has made her work universally agreeable. Drawing her inspiration from numerous sources, including her in-depth knowledge of musical harmony, the wide range of literature she reads, her cross cultural/anthropological studies in general and a particularly keen interest in the study of nature’s laws, she breathes her interpretation of life through the medium of a fine liner pen, pencils, watercolour, acrylic and oil paints. Occasionally work is taken to a further stage of development on the computer. Her work’s purpose is to open the inner mind of the viewer. That is the mind that rests it’s consciousness between the still contemplation of the unfolding soul and the spirit which breathes it’s light into the lessons of life.
Great on the wall of your home, as screen-saver or jigsaw, Lim-Lim’s canvas prints and other goods are dressed to impress and make wonderfully original gifts. Appreciated by many for her integral approach to her studies, her natural way is intricate and detailed, leaving just as much space as is necessary for the eye/mind to be able to breathe. In a realm of fantasy and fairy-tale, Lim-Lim’s mandalic scenescapes and abstract compositions are a wonder to behold.
Since 2001, she has been on a personal mission to understand all there is to about the bewilderment and wonder of mandalic design. With a strong psychedelic edge, she is now thirsty to rekindle the passion of her youth and is embarking on a journey to embrace realism in her works once more. Being now well versed in her unique and highly stylized approach, she feels it is time to focus on the real world once more and collaborating what she has learnt of her wild depictions of the ether.
