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.

we love books!

The Secret Garden, is showing at the Tokyo Book Art Week 2011, happening now till August 29th. Inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book (one of my all-time favourite books - Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow? ), I had an immense urge to fold pages into roses. I want to fill an entire room with folded book pages flowers! Perhaps one day. If you read Japanese, visit their website here and if not, their facebook page here. Better yet, if you’re in Japan, drop by Temple University campus and check out the many many lovely artist books! I sure wish I could be there! 

Thanks to La Libreria for this fantastic opportunity!!!
