With a background of fashion, Yiru is a textile storyteller who aspires to become a textile art therapist. She explored the healing effect of handworks during the process of self-taught hand-knitting and crocheting.
Influenced by psychology, Yiru keeps exploring the diversity of living beings and human nature. Within a body dwells in “reality”, her mind lives on a spiritual space with a plethora of creatures, where she draws her inspiration. She aims to pull her imaginary world into reality, showing them through handcrafted textiles. It is through her self-healing process that she can deal with the accumulated trauma of being in a world full of suffocating strictness.
