About the Artist
Michelle Ma ( born 1978, China) started her Chinese ink painting training since she was eight years old. Being a full-time artist wasn’t being realized until 2015 when she became a mother of her two young children in Singapore. She left her corporate job in Shell after 13 years in order to pursue her childhood dream.
After her debut exhibition in The Substation in Singapore in 2016, her artwork had been collected all over the world. She has been featured on various platforms in Singapore and overseas. Some of her artworks have appeared on” Liao He Zao Bao”( the widest read Chinese newspaper in Singapore). The strong colours and expressive strokes made her work stand out as there are stories behind each painting.
