About the Artists

Lafin Sawmah 

Driftwood Art and Furniture /Public Art

I came back to Taitung in 2009 in searching of a pace of life that I feel more comfortable with. I gradually become a driftwood artist. The touch of wood makes me calm and stable as if I was reborn and gradually turned into what I should be.

Heidi Yip  

Artist / Painting / Textile / Crafts

Heidi was born in Hong Kong. She immigrated to Canada when she was ten. Heidi majored in painting at Ontario College of Art & Design. After that, she has studied in Italy and stayed in New York. Her rich and dynamic background enables her to travel a lot and create artworks for more than ten years. In 2007, Heidi visited the East Coast, and she was so fascinated by the landscape, plants, people, the ocean and the culture that she decided to settle down in Taitung. Now she embarks on a journey into the world of painting.
