Turine Tran, a Vietnamese born artist, takes inspiration from children, companionship, nature, and her short but happy childhood. Through nostalgic, dreamy images, Turine loves to invite children and adult-alike, to a world where a tiny wild flower could become a fantastic wonder.
Turine Tran was born and grew up in Saigon, Vietnam. After beginning her art study in 2001, she pursued her life-long passion with illustration through a fantastic journey that lead from her hometown to Singapore; then a couple of years later, from Singapore to Paris. After that, she went from Paris to the city of Edinburgh, where she obtained a Masters of Art degree in Illustration from the prestigious Edinburgh College of Art.
Fluent in both traditional studio practice and digital media, Turine's art often incorporates hand rendering and digital painting. She constantly explores new aspects of digital art to create rich textures, which partly set a whimsical mood to her work.
