My name is Hai Lian. I was born on 17th November 1991, in Banting, to a wonderfully supportive family. I grew up and went to school in PDK Teluk Datuk for many years. After school I discovered that I had a talent for art! That was when I started drawing. After getting pretty good at drawing, I decided to venture into something more challenging, which was batik painting. Batik painting was more interesting for me as I could express myself more. I learnt to use the batik blok, to do canting and eventually started to create pieces on my own, with all the different colours.
