Profiel Singaporean-born Shuen-Li Spirit is a contemporary Batik artist and a member of the Batik Guild. She was taught art at a young age by her talented mother.

After obtaining her teaching degree at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore, she went on to teach fine arts at secondary schools before relocating to Indonesia. There she continued to refine her Batik talent as a way to connect with her roots.

In 2016, she moved to the Netherlands to live with her Dutch man. Today she is a commissioned artist and she gives Batik classes and workshops in the Netherlands to children and adults alike.

Shuen-Li enjoys pleasing and inspiring her customers and students with the magic of Batik painting. Available for art commissions, she regularly contributes articles to the Batik Guild magazines and is currently illustrating a children's book. Her upcoming Batik exhibition will be held in Florida in 2022.
