Lucinda Law is a botanical watercolour artist, teacher, writer and founder of Within. Within started as a nature-led creative consultancy and studio in 2016 with an objective of depicting the healing beauty of the nature, developing a community of nature-led art patrons and supporting the cause of nature conservation.
Lucinda has more than 8 years of teaching experience in tertiary arts and design institute in Singapore, such as Temasek Polytechnic, Lasalle College of the Arts and Glasgow School of Arts. While working full time as a Senior Lecturer in Lasalle College of the Arts, and overseeing the department of Cultural & Theoretical Studies in Fashion, she completed her Masters in Fine Arts in 2011. Her thesis focus on creating immersive art installations through the use of digital projections and hand-assembled installations of kinetic sculptures, while exploring the relationship between image and text.
Lucinda’s works move between the realms of analog and digital, using old world charm watercolour techniques and progressive digital expressions to express her love stories of nature. Lucinda is currently creating a series of work which develops her growing interest in environment conservation in collaboration with botanical gardens and other environmental institutions. She also programmes and conducts botanical art workshops, courses and immersive creative retreats that takes city dwellers into nature spots to enhance their attunement with nature and their well-being.

As a self-taught watercolorist, she was also trained in botanical illustration at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, United Kingdom. She exhibited her first solo art installation in 2012.

“You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer. In that kind of relationship, you have enough love, strength and awakening in order to change your life.” —Thich Nhat Hanh
