My name's Kim Siew. I'm an artist and educator living in Sydney, Australia.
I tell stories through mural art and illustration, full of quirky, playful characters that bring a little smile to your day.
Alongside my mural and illustration work, I teach workshops in story building.
Participants are guided through the creation of their own stories using techniques such as zine making, puppet making and book binding.
Take a look at the classes I teach here.
Oh, I'm also a lover of stationary and craft.
You can find and purchase my paper puppets, stationary, zines and other fun merchandise online at my
Etsy shop Akisiew.
