About the Artist
Agatha Lee "Agy" is a Singapore-based textile artist specialising in embroidery. She was born in England and grew up in Hong Kong where she spent her childhood making daisy chains and walking in the hills. Although she learnt to sew from her mother, it was not until 2012 that she rediscovered her passion for it and started creating textile collages through free motion machine embroidery, handstitching and marking. Her previous career as an environmental policy maker has enabled her to bridge the gap between nature and art, and has encouraged her to create works to reconnect people with the environment. As an environmental advocate, her current work looks at slowing down and making the invisible visible.
Agy was an invited artist for The Big Draw 2015, Playeum, art residency L’Observatoire 2017, and Singapore Design Week 2018. Agy has also exhibited at Art Encounters (Arts Outreach SG) The Substation, Singapore Eco Film Festival, The Festival of Quilts (UK) and The Knitting & Stitching Show. As part of her practice, she holds regular workshops and community-based installations.
She is a member of the Society for Embroidery Work and Fertile Art Refinery Singapore.
