CiCi Yim is Canadian born Chinese-Hong Kong Artist
who is passionate about using vibrant colours on her canvas.
She graduated from University of British Columbia
with a bachelors of Psychology. Her love of Victorian architecture,
european musicals and classy english accent,
led her to further her studies in United Kingdom,
where she completed her Masters of business administration.
Her colourful artwork represents her enthusiasm and optimistic nature in life.
CiCi’s interest in drawing began at the age of four where
she enjoyed doodling on restaurant napkins whenever
she had a chance. Since then,
CiCi’s family members encouraged her to learn
from several master artists to help her explore
different styles of drawing and painting.
Having lived and experienced the polar east and west sides
of beautiful Vancouver city,
CiCi attended Lord Nelson Elementary and
Eric Hamber Secondary School.
CiCi claims that, “painting calms my soul,
grounds my heart and provides clear direction.”
Her paintings reflect her state of mind at
that moment in time and places greater emphasis
into the title of her artworks. Recently she has been
learning Chinese painting under Aixinjueluo Yu Ting.
One of her first Chinese paintings entitled
‘Canadian Eagle in the Woods’ has been on display in several
art galleries. In 2015, CiCi was awarded outstanding
women in Vancouver. She is the founder of Canadian Institute
of Jewellery & Design, director of Ultimate 24K Gold Co.
and a member of the Chinese Canadian Artists association.
