As a child my home was filled with hanging Chinese silk embroidery. This design pays homage to their fantastic craftsmanship. I wanted to keep the feel of the embroidery shapes but transform it into a new medium. Chinese art is wealthy with symbolism and I have chosen the motifs and decorative elements that not only were most prolific in my household but bring the most prosperity. The peach bringing longevity, the dragon for wisdom and the bat for good fortune.
