We’ve seen our fair share of artists hunched over their wobbly easel along the road, painting as passers-by gawk; the illustrator at the corner table inking café scenes into his Moleskine. But we’ve never seen someone sew a scenery on the spot – Lasalle College of the Arts graduate Teresa Lim either has really nimble fingers or a lot of time to kill, because her embroidery work is pretty thorough with lots of attention to detail.
Seeking to “blur the…boundaries between being an illustrator and a textile designer,” Teresa’s Sew Wanderlust is an on-going series documenting her travels around the world. She has so far embroidered in places like Tokyo, London, Berlin, Prague and Vietnam, and has exhibited in major Asian cities like Hong Kong and Bangkok.
