Gone are the days when embroidery was synonymous to a rocking chair. Teresa Lim, also known as Teeteeheehee, is like a gift that keeps on giving. With a steady stream of works, exhibitions, local and overseas, and commercial commissions to boot (it’s just Gucci and Coach, guys, no biggie), this Lasalle alumnus is quite the silent heavy-hitter. The spirit of her works is both unabashedly feminine and strong, and this polarity seems be the fuel that is keeping the fire going. Trained in Fashion, with a prowess in Textile Design that couldn’t go unnoticed, Teeteeheehee have successfully fused illustration, embroidery, and surface pattern design: and she did all this before it was cool and feminist.
