Eros Coaching decided to feature Kelvin Lim of KelvinLim.com.sg about his work as a portrait artist, photographer and writer.
1) Tell us more about yourself.
I’m Kelvin Lim, a portrait artist, photographer and writer based in Singapore. I dedicate my career and life to expressing the beauty I feel in people, no matter what the world thinks of them.
Clients hire me to remember an important moment in their lives – finding love, having a child, their breastfeeding journey, turning 30, 40, 50, 60…, celebrating beauty before it fades with time.
My services include portrait painting and photography for people of all ages and background, both locally and overseas. Every assignment contributes to our effort to give back to society – to bring joy to someone in need.
I’m best known for:
- my artistic portraits of individuals, couples and children
- my deep conversations with the elderly and less fortunate, resulting in important social projects – from working with major NGOs to bringing joy to the man-on-the-street.
2) Why do you do what you do?
I believe no one should wear a mask, just to be accepted by others. I believe the greatest gift is the gift of acceptance.
I’ve experienced a natural desire to understand people since I was a child, so my work is simply an extension of this passion. I’ve learnt that if we take the time and heart to listen and empathise, we will discover a beauty beneath how people look on the outside. This can be incredibly empowering and up-lifting.
It is a wonderful blessing for us, as artists, to have this ability to touch people’s lives.
3) What are your future plans?
We’re expanding our painting and photography commissions to Europe, and hope to share our joy to more people around the world.
4) Any advice for others?
Just a quiet reminder to slow down, and listen.
