In 2017, Yan graduated with a B.A. in Fine Art from Royal Rmit University
(co-presented with Hong Kong Art School).
As an artist, Yan is inspired by the beauty of patterns and fascinating objects, both often seen in her artwork. What inspires Yan to paint is the idea of breathing life into an empty canvas, life created through the process of painting. Each stroke of paint she connects onto the canvas is another breath given to a new life. This satisfaction of creation fuels her passion for painting.
Yan likes to express her work in a colourful and fantasy way. She hopes people can forget their troubles and displeasures when they see her artworks and feel the joyful atmosphere.
Through her artwork, Yan aims to lead her audiences on a journey between the fabrics of reality and fantasy.
