I find the slowness of fully concentrating on one thing very beautiful and I enjoy it very much. Therefore, I spend a great amount of time focusing on fiber art during my undergraduate study, mainly on tapestry weaving, to experience the power and duality of explicitness and subtlety, conflict and harmony, and concreteness and abstraction.

“Thou Speakest Not” series tapestry is a self-generated project inspired by the texture and color mixing on palette, which reminds people of the beauty of the paint itself. “Flowing Clouds and Streaming Water,”  “The Purple Air Comes from the East—A Propitious Omen,” and “The Golden Prairie” are commercial customized projects.
