Poh Ling Yeow was born in Malaysia in 1973, spending the first nine years of her life in Kuala Lumpur. Her family then migrated to South Australia where she now lives and works. After completing a Bachelor of Design specialising in illustration at the University of South Australia, Yeow freelanced as a graphic designer and illustrator. She has been painting full-time since the beginning of 2002.

Yeow's works emphatically explore notions of belonging and origin. As a fifth-generation Chinese Malaysian Yeow's paintings are an attempt at reconciling this heritage with her Western identity. Her traditionally-influenced scenic pieces and sometimes whimsical use of Chinese iconography acknowledges the fragmentation of her Chinese cultural experience.

Yeow works predominantly with acrylic on canvas.
