With regards to her creative inspiration I-Chun has stated, “Growing up in a tiny fishing village on the small island of Taiwan, surrounded with a rich heritage of native culture and natural beauty, I became sensitive to vibrant colors and texture at an early age. I was formally trained in textile artistry at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design where I was inspired to combine my weaving skills with my creative thoughts to push the boundaries of textile art. Each handmade piece I create is unique and original.”
