Lily Tan is a balloon artist from Singapore.

She has been in multiple book of records with her balloon sculptures as a part of big balloon builds in Singapore.

Her good eye for details and finishing touches are what makes her balloon creations so unique.

This is the first time that Lily will be teaching in Europe, so we are very proud to have her at Nozzle Up 2020.
