TSAI Shiu-Yuin, who is also known as Arsenia LIM, maintains strong bonds to three places: in China—where she traces her ancestral roots, in Taiwan—where she received her university education and art training, and in the Philippines—her birthplace and family’s current residence.
She first learned Chinese painting under Sino-Filipino painter Yang Keng-Tang, and continued to study painting and calligraphy while a History major at National Taiwan University. Tsai has been teaching Chinese painting for 45 years. Since 2006, she has been offering her Shui Mo (Water and Ink) traditional Chinese painting classes at Yuchengco Museum. She has had eight solo shows, and has participated in more than a hundred group exhibits in the Philippines and abroad.
