Kelly Ng Shah

Kelly Ng Shah

Born: 1979

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

Art is not a birth given talent, and Kelly Ng Shah is a prime example of that. None of her family members were artistic let alone interested in the field. She would start with craft work such as knitting, rug making, and clay work at the age of five, spending hours and hours matching the colored yarns to create distinctive crafts. That combination of knits, colors, and eagerness to express her inner self drew her to sketching and painting. Her love for watercolors, oil, soft pastels, charcoal, and resin caused her to enroll herself in both public and private education to learn different techniques. Bold colors, multi-layering, shading, and the use of gold and silverleaf characterize Kelly’s paintings, which are best expressed via acrylics. A prominent and careful eye for colors stands out in every painting, reflecting her personality. Bolder choices of colors with sharp defined areas within the canvas highlight her numerous obstacles in life that she conquered through her creative outlet.

She has since been following the flow, letting the environment that surrounds her guide her hand. Periods of isolation and silence help her to recharge and redefine the hidden details in her paintings, often interjecting sessions for each piece. Her art is a series of ideas and cannot simply be completed with one give and go, leading her to revise each piece after sitting with them for a while. Kelly’s paintings aim to give a positive and colorful spin to any wall, creating a peaceful environment for the audience.

She has already given several pieces new lives with overjoyed owners, filling homes across the globe. She spreads her love to every corner possible, whether that be art showrooms and museums or office spaces and family homes. She paints to please, and there is always joy in the eyes of every customer who commissions her for a beautiful new visual addition in their lives!

More About Kelly Ng Shah

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Raw emotion - It comes from deep within myself

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

When I start a painting, there are no rules. Sometimes, I know what I am going to do, sometimes I don't. I like surprising myself along the way. Painting, for me, is an intuitive process, and so I let the canvas tell me where to go, and the paint and the canvas and me create a piece of art that people will enjoy.
