About the Instructor: Yuen Nee, LEE (Founder of Lee.and.art)

“To be an artist is to believe in life.”
Lee, who hails from Kuala Lumpur, has explored the beauty of traditional Chinese ink painting and found her passion in this wonderful art form. Chinese ink painting is not only an art, it also allows people to improve their patience and appreciation towards mother nature. Unfortunately, this traditional style of painting is not well known by most Malaysians, especially the younger generation. Therefore, Lee has decided to develop modern Chinese ink painting and started “Lee.and.art” to promote this beautiful art to hopefully, keep the tradition going.
