She wields her needles with fondness, expresses meaning with threads, marries emotion and purpose, and conveys her artistic connotation with rich and flexible needlework. Jenny Gao (Qingmin Gao) has been studying the art of embroidery with her grandmother since the age of 6. To further improve her techniques, she made a life-changing decision to move to the city of Suzhou in her early adulthood and met her mentor in embroidery. In 2008, she founded 'Xiu Zhen Ge', the Art Centre of Embroidery. As an advocate and pioneer in her field, Gao has made remarkable achievements and major contributions to the flourishing of Chinese embroidery culture.
