Ly Yeow makes Art a practice that brings her into a space of freedom and peace. She picked up drawing in 2011 as an outlet to express overwhelming emotions. Largely a self taught artist who believes in trying new things, her style evolves through daily experimentation; from detailed line work to watercolour pieces, paper cuts and now resin. Every travel is completed with sketchbooks filled with illustrations documenting her journey. A visit to Orchid Island in 2015 got her interested in seascapes. Life by the sea celebrates simplicity and Ly spent days sitting on shore watching the changing colours of the breaking waves. Driven by the tides of the ocean, salty air and wild winds, there are always different shades of blues and another new hue to discover. Ly floats on golden sunbeams and surf quiet waves, lives her mermaid dream and continues to paint sea magic. She loves to be remembered as the sea painter.

Other than drawing, teaching the little ones most appealed to Ly. Children think everything is possible and such creative minds blow her away. Hence she founded LyttleSpace, a place where children express through visuals. Ly believes that the world is a more beautiful place when children make art.
