Shan Shan Lim is a multidisciplinary artist, textile and surface designer based in Kuala Lumpur. Her works draw inspiration from a spectrum of cultures from her childhood in Malaysia and India to her bachelors at Central Saint Martins, London. While in London, she interned with Roksanda on their Spring 2016 RTW Collection. 

She is at her most comfortable when she is expressing her creative voice through any medium of art. Her works are mostly inspired by her love for nature, childhood memories and images collected whilst travelling.
