Apple Yin

... It's about the meditation mind and about the Buddhist thinking of finding beauty in nature...

Apple uses an "unusually" large breadth of colours in her palette to build a richness that is unique in Australian art today.  This has been part of the formula that has quickly established her as a regular finalist in major art prizes shortly after entering the art world in Australia.

As a tutor her beginner students benefit from her experience and deep skills in the use of colour. They consistently show exceptional progress over a short period of time. 

Awards & Qualifications Include

Finalist Archibald Prize 2010, 2011

Finalist Moran Portrait Prize 2009

Finalist Shirley Hannan National Portrait Awards 2008

Finalist Hornsby Art Prize 2013 

Apple has a fascinating and inspring story - spanning her early days as an art student in China - coming to Australia - and then her emergence into the Australian art scene.

Apple has been a finalist in the Shirley Hannan prize in 2008, Moran Prize in 2009 and then dual Archibald finalist in 2010 and 2011.

We are pleased to be able to offer our students and friends the opportunity to learn from her first hand the approach that has enabled her achievement to become an Archibalid finalist.

Apple is an incredible talent - her works represent all that is good about art - "western" subjects that are well considered and sophisticated - fused with an eastern context - finished with an unsurpassed attention to detail and execution.
