Artist / Writer / Fashionista
My name is Shirley Chen and I was born in the international city of Shanghai, China. Now I'm living in Sweden where I do artwork, writing and fashion related photography.
Started really working on my own blog where I write about my daily life, fashion, Chinese culture. I also post my various creative works and my daily looks.
Show at Galleri TJUNE 2011
I had an artshow at Galleri T on Osterlanggatan in Stockholm. It was a nice experience and I met several nice people.
Shirley C, Art & Design2010-PRESENT
This was the start of my goal to work full-time with being creative. Under my own brand Shirley C I have so far developed several products like candle holders, wall decorations and embroidered pillows.
Moved to SwedenAUGUST 2007
I moved from Shanghai to Sweden in August 2007, a big decision which I feel happy about today since it enabled me to focus on my creative works full time.
I have loved painting since an early age and starting 2010 I have been able to focus more and more on it. Since 2010 I use many techniques like oil, acrylic, aquarelle, indian-ink, photoshop.
I am a graduate of Songjiang University in Shanghai. I enjoyed my time in school and feel that education is important, but its even more important to find out what you love to do and work hard to be able to do that.
