Lim Pui Wan is a self-taught, full-time miniature artist based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A mechanical engineering graduate, Lim’s foray into the world of miniature art began in 2007, with her sister’s gift of a dollhouse book from Taiwan.
Over the years, Lim’s works have grown increasingly intricate and sophisticated, evolving from individual objects to scenes and full environments. Lim expresses that several of her works are rooted in memories, especially those of old-school objects or food reminiscent of childhood. She considers her craft a way of preserving these memories, and by extension, parts of Malaysian culture.
