Chinese Suzhou Embroidery Artist - Zou Yingzi

Zou Yingzi, a young national arts and crafts artist, was born in Zhenhu in 1972. As a child, she was taught embroidery skills by her mother. After she graduated from senior high school, she was apprenticed to Wang Zushi, a silk embroidery master in Suzhou Embroidery Research Institute. She is currently the operator of the Yingzi Embroidery Art Workroom on Shantang Street, Suzhou. Zou Yingzi has frequently traveled abroad with government delegations to demonstrate her embroidery skills. Most of Suzhou silk embroideries are reproduced from paintings. Zou Yingzi is the first Suzhou embroidery artist who combines her own photography with silk embroidery. She made her national award-winning embroidery work series ‘Branches and Vines’ based on the photos she took herself.
