Artist Bio: Born in the suburbs of Beijing to a humble sporting family – Jingna moved to Singapore at the age of eight. At 14, a mere nine months after picking up a air rifle, she broke the national record and joined the national team. Two years later, she left the prestigious Raffles Girls’ School to pursue a degree in fashion design. Picking up the camera then, it eventually turned into her voice.
In order to take her passion to greater heights, she left school again in late 2007, and subsequently the national team, to become a professional photographer.
In the span of a year, she had photographed campaigns for Mercedes Benz, Pond’s and Wacom, as well as editions of Harper’s Bazaar and L’Officiel.
In 2007 Jingna became the youngest recipient of Associateship in the Masters Photographers Association, and a year leater, staged her first solo exhibition at The Arts House in Singapore.
With work described as being “ethereal, romantic, and sensuous” - Jingna’s images exude a quiet and steady confidence with maturity belying her age.
