My artistic journery has taken me to various fields beyond my profession as Creative Director in the fashion industry. I have several design awards when I attended Parsons School of Design. I offen direct design and graphic teams to create collections of apparel and accessories with high-tech computer system.
As I witness our lives in such a fast paced world; painting,sketching or any handcrafted work becomes a dying art. I enjoy the feel of picking up a Venus#4B pencil; a piece of charcoal stick, or a paint brush in my hand to create artwork.
Mixed medium is also my passion. Adding hand-embroidery, beading, or combining different textures of paper or fabrics to my uniuqe fashion collage. With the frequent requests of my artwork,and paintings, I have created 'LeLu Design LLC'-- a studio merges Fine Art and Fashion. There is a limited edition of silk screen clothing line reflecting these images on my website: www.EllenYLau.com, and www.CozyPetal.com
Travels inspire me tremendously,learning from various cultures often gives me a fresh take to create new art --from the exotic Ikat patterns of Bali, to the rich and spicy color palette of Morocco, and Mexico. I also love to spot interesting composition of landscape or buildings through my camera lense.
