Tan Aik Lan
Having an imaginative spirit, Aik Lan started her artistic practice when she was young. She graduated from NAFA with a Diploma in Graphic Communications in 1992 after attaining a certificate in Western Painting in 1988. She has since collaborated with Desmond Tan, Mediacorp artiste and Pearson Publishing, among others. She is interested in literature for young audiences and child psychology, with a special knack for illustrations. Her oil-painting series has won the hearts of many, garnering attention by merit of her brilliant play with colours and textures. This series also won the heart of Tan Wu Meng, MP for Jurong GRC.
