About Me

My name is Wai-Yuk (pronounced sort of “why-yook”). I grew up in Hong Kong but now live in North Cornwall with my wonderful husband, where we’ve been for the last twenty-or-so years. We have two beautiful, grown-up children who occasionally come home to demand food and attention.

I have always been in love with creating crafts and art work. I studied Fine Art at art college, and have worked on many projects including embroidery, doll making, soft furnishings, dress making, painting, printing and ceramics. I’ve worked as a cook, a graphic designer, a glove designer, and have taught crafts to children and to adults. I now get to spend most of my time on my greatest love: creating intricate textile artwork.

My work tends to draw inspiration from the many places I’ve visited: the plants and rivers of Hong Kong, the rugged shapes and textures of North Cornwall, and the patterns and prints of India. I carry my camera with me everywhere so I can snap shots of the tiny wonders that catch my eye through the day.

I hope that my posts give you something to smile about, and that they set your fingers itching to have a go too!
