The vivid lines and colours are enthralling, seeming from a distance to be a painting, yet each stitch completed by hand. This piece invites over 50 silk thread colours.

She is now pursuing her Masters degree in the Graduate School of Chinese National Academy of Arts, after graduating from Beijing University with a Bachelor of Law.
