Sheena Liam in her studio, 2018


Sheena Liam is a Malaysian born artist and model. As a child, Liam learnt the basics of embroidery from her mother and found herself revisiting the medium time and time again as means of self expression between travelling and modelling. 

"In a strange way modelling parallels my art in the sense I often have to use body language as means of expressing a certain sort of mood. It's no different from my embroideries.”

Sheena had her first solo exhibition in October 2018 with Item Gallery a contemporary art space closely connected with fine art printing house Idem Paris.

Founded in 1852 and formerly known as Atelier Mourlot, the legendary lithographic print house has hosted the likes of Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro to name a few.
