Imagining & Creating Fab Sculptures
My name is Lydia Tjoa and I am a resident of Oakville, Ontario. I am originally from the Philippines. I’ve been retired for about eleven years, having worked as a Registered Nurse in a major Toronto Hospital and also in Montreal, QC. Prior to emigrating to Canada, I lived and worked in the United States.
I loved my profession but I have been so interested in arts & crafts my whole life. So how did I get here?
At one of those “One of a Kind Shows” in Toronto, I was captivated by a lady creating a statue with some kind of “muddy” stuff. Of course, as curious as I am, I started asking questions. Creating structures from a what? An old cotton T-shirt? How versatile is that! I signed up for a class right away! I was hooked! Here I am now fulfilling a passion for creativity.
It’s such a delight to be a part of the Paverpol fabric sculpting world because I find that I can express my creativity and, hopefully, share this joy with others. It pleases me to see a smile when someone admires my whimsical figures.
