Cindy Y. Lam is a contemporary visual artist based in Toronto, Canada. Her expressive brushwork captures the spirit and energy of the places and animals she loves. Lam's works with acrylics on canvas, watercolour on paper or digital photography often serve as a foundation for the addition of various mixed media. She is currently pursuing an Master of Fine Arts degree at Falmouth University, UK.
Creating art grounds the restlessness in me and it helps me to reflect upon the passage of time, my relationships with people, animals and nature. Typically for landscapes, I paint from memory and reference personal photos. Vacillating between representation and abstraction, my work strives to capture the essence and vitality of my subject matter.
