I am interested in traditional crafts such as embroidery, weaving and knitting to explore cross-cultural connections between Australia and China. Specifically, my textile artworks focus on representations of cultural signs and signifiers. In this major work, I draw on my personal experience of living in China and Australia to show the cultural and environmental differences between both places. To do this, I utilise hand-embroidery and transform coloured threads into vibrant textural floral forms. Through this process I also hope to communicate a renewed sense of continuity and the mystery surrounding creativity.
