Both art and sewing have been part of my life since I was young. While studying engineering in college, I continued to make art and took art courses, where I was first introduced to quilts as art. After a finishing Master’s degree in biomedical engineering, I decided to pursue art more seriously. For three years, I worked as an artist full time. Since December 2006, I have been working as a full time research technician and a part time artist.
Although I have worked in a variety of media, including pencil, oils, pastels, and fabric, I am currently focusing on making art quilts. I see art quilting as painting with fabrics and threads. I like working in quilts because of their touchable texture and their familiarity as functional objects. The quilts I make can be either hung as art works or used like traditional quilts. Many of my quilts are based on the beauty I see in natural objects or scenes. I am continually experimenting with new techniques and materials to produce different effects.
