ABOUT AUDREY YOKE-LIN LIM Audrey fell in love with sports at a young age of 12 while being a primary school student. Herpassion coupled with talent led her to proudly represent Malaysia in two South East Asian Gamesfor the 100m hurdles event in the 80s. With great potential to excel in a dynamic environment,she was awarded a scholarship from the Malaysian Ministry of Youth & Sports to major in PhysicalEducation (Allied Health) in the USA in 1987. As life went by, the next 25 years of her life wascentered within the corporate and business sectors ranging from the fields of Finance &Investment, Communications and lastly to Advertising Film Production before she prematurelyretired from the advertising industry.
The demanding work life has never stopped her from setting her heart on pursuing newchallenges. It was through a change in family life that prompted her to endeavor in the art ofpainting. As a person filled with spiritual conviction, Audrey believes that this journey in paintingis a path guided by the Divine and through this “gift” she began to realise that painting was hersolace and therapy which added a different dimension to her life. Audrey found lost love in a newform filled with the same energy and spirit of the athlete she was. To her wonder, she began totranslate strokes and colours with a fresh set of zeal, will power and flair into the art pieces yousee today.
