Zou has been obsessed with embroidery since she was six years old. With her unique understanding of the traditional craft, she invented a brand new needling method named "dropping stitch".

This stitching method involves contrasting between light and darkness and is perfect for simulating calligraphy works, Chinese ink paintings, wall paintings and bronze wares.
