Beverly Tu is a fashion designer and mixed media artist that focuses on fabric manipulation, textiles, beading, and textures. Most of her works emphasize the movement with organic curved lines and spontaneity of the creative process in the making. Combining various materials, technologies and found objects to create hybrid forms that address the relationship and connection between texture, pattern, abstraction, femininity, and expression. The inspiration can be drawn from the places and cultures where she visited in the past or from her previous explorations of materials. A process of channeling the past to present, re-imagining and re-assigning the world in which she exists.
