Like any other regular child, after graduating from Shanghai University I worked in one trading company before moved to Sweden.
I began to paint in spare time after I moved to Sweden in 2007. And started my blog www.shirleychen.com in 2010 to share my artworks and during those years I had some art shows inside Sweden. Since 2015, I began to share my daily looks and hand combined with computer illustrations too. Because I love cat and had one cat who called Mimi for more than 8 years. So cats appeared very often in my illustrations.
I also like to work with design, so far I have done some interior design items like wall decoration, candle holders, fabric and embroidered pillows and more. In my mind art, design or fashion all are about bring beautiful things to people.
Thanks to the current world give me the chance which much easier to express myself to all of the world and relate to 360° compared to before.
I love what I’m doing now and I will continue it and I hope I can always remember the first heart when I started my blog.
