Izziyana Suhaimi

Textile Artist

Izziyana Suhaimi is a Singapore-based artist who tells stories through weaving and sewing. No surface is unfamiliar to her needle — she has sewn on cloth, paper and even photographs! Through her sewing, ‘time’ becomes something that can be felt and seen – each stitch represents a moment that has passed. Besides being an important expression of Izziyana’s religious practice as a Muslim, making art also gives her precious “me time” when she is not busy baking or being a mother. Even so, her hands never seem to rest — they are always hard at work, cutting, covering, building and taking threads apart.
