Testimonial: "I've admired Chin and her artwork for a while. It was at Zambri's [restaurant] that I first saw her series of colourful islands and was amazed at how these lovely vertical paintings transformed a space, adding vibrancy, playfulness and a zest for life through its colours, shapes and patterns. I've recently moved into a new office space and decided to add colour and energy to this otherwise dull space with Chin's art. I had my heart set on the vertical islands. There was one that I was instantly drawn to, for its cool colours and composition, reminding me of the calm after the snow storms in Victoria this past winter. The second piece is the perfect compliment, with a vibrant red sky and deep blue ocean, reminding me of the amazing life and beauty of the west coast in late spring. These two art pieces are like symbolic bookends to a significant time in my life. It is such an honour and joy to have Chin, and her artwork, in my life." Debbie Chan, Canada.
