Li Ching Heng
Li Ching (Leach) is an artist who specialises in pen and watercolour art. She has participated in exhibitions in Singapore, Japan and Korea. The years she spent as a professional Gemologist, observing the internal landscapes of gemstones, have translated into a fluid and refined style, full of light and colour. Li Ching’s aesthetic influences derive from fairytales, old picture books, nature and more recently, tutelage under local Chinese Ink master Nai Swee Leng.
As a Book Illustrator, Li Ching was featured at the Asian Festival of Children’s Content in 2018 & 2019. Her first book, “Jade’s Quest For Her Heritage” was published in 2019 with endorsement from the National Heritage Board and the SG Bicentennial. Her third book, “Where Shall I Sleep Tonight?” will be published this year.
Li Ching is passionate about teaching. Her clients include the National Gallery of Singapore, Six Senses Resorts, Overjoyed, Rolex, Hendricks Gin, Franck Muller etc. She volunteers regularly at schools and non-profit organisations.
In 2020, Li Ching was appointed as Brand Ambassador for German paint makers, Schmincke.
