Endlessly curious. My work primarily involves the use of embroidery. I am interested in collapsing the boundaries between traditional and popular cultures and exploring the links that exist between these two. My work examines how this particular mishmash manifests itself in modern times, especially concerning modern youths. Preferring to work with craft-based techniques, I am attracted to the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centred age of today. My works have been exhibited in Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan.

here’s a short one before sleep.

I know I know it’s been ages since I last updated (some posts might have started to fossilise). Things have been crazy exciting busy and I’m so sorry this space is looking a little bit dusty and abandoned. First of all, to all of you new followers - HELLO!!! Thank you so much for visiting my small corner here and dropping me all your nice messages. It makes me very happy that my work seems to make people happy. Inspires me to keep my chin up and move forward. So thank you (: 

It’s been quite a crazy couple of months. I’ve just started a new job (yay! Alhamdulillah) at a relatively new gallery (check it out here) and it’s been great. We have many exciting plans for the next year. The team is very dedicated and that’s nice to be around. Been working on a few commissions as well, which of course is keeping my fingers busy. And I’ve also been involved with this super duper fun exhibition called Pameran Poskad, which will be held in September. 

Ok, that’s about it. Just thought I should write a little something here, it’s been looking a little sad! Will definitely try my best to post more here (I know I say it everytime. haha). And oh! Ramadan mubarak to all my Muslim brothers and sisters out there. May this Ramadan be a better one than the last, insya Allah.

Thank you!

ps: Does it bother you that I say “first of all” and there is no second? Hmm time to sleep, good night!
