“When I paint with my fingers, it makes me feel one with the canvas. I am free to create whatever I have in my mind. I am a very sensorial person, so it feels almost like an intimate process to me.” – Adeline Yeo
Adeline Yeo, born in 1977, is recognised as Singapore’s first female finger-painting artist.
The strong and uninhibited finger strokes on her paintings, speak of uninhibited courage and confidence. It is a combination of femme fatale strength and gentle femininity all at once. Adeline’s artworks have the ability to empower, uplift and inspire, it is no wonder that many find her paintings emotional and inspirational, motivating one to explore the many storied facets of life. Her works are often vibrant, refreshing and one-of-a-kind. These are reflections of her deep thoughts as well as her zest for life and hope for love.
As an artist, Adeline also challenges convention by painting – at times, in public – blindfolded, a practice that enables her to create exceptional artworks that are authentic and soulful, much like heartbeats and pulses that connect the mind, body and soul.
