Singapore artist Sheila Tang painting plein air in Singapore


Sheila Tang 陈欣莲 is a Singapore artist.  She graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in Singapore in 1987 and Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts in China in 2000.  


While she paints mainly in oil and acrylic, she also enjoys Chinese ink painting.  


Sheila used to paint plein-air around Singapore and even overseas such as Malaysia, but she is now more focused on producing large scale 100cm by 100cm paintings in her studio. 


An active member of several art societies in Singapore, she organised many art exhibitions over the years, to help increase the visibility of our local artists.
