黎嘉玲 , 生於澳洲,在香港長大,畢業於倫敦藝術大學的切爾西藝術設計學院紡織品學系 ,主修編織。對於嘉玲而言,編織不單是一門實用的工藝, 更重要的是織布設計使用的圖案及色彩作為記載個人情感與回憶的意義。畢業後,她獨自前往東南亞繼續鑽研當地民間布藝, 同時她在創作中喜歡多嘗試不一樣的藝術媒介,如拍短片,繪畫和攝影。

2014年秋天,正式回港,
2015年在中國中山 – 詹园 舉辦她第一個長期展覽覽<心。思。惜 >。

Lai Garling (Karen), born in Australia and raised in Hong Kong. She began her textile art journey in London, Chelsea College of Art. She specializes in weaving, an old traditional form of textile production that interlaces two distinct sets of yarn to form a fabric.

In early 2016, Karen had her first solo exhibition in Hong Kong titled, Diminishing Memories. The artworks displayed were a series of tactile family photographs developed from *cyanotype and transferred to her own handwoven textile.

*Cyanotype, an old photographic printing process that requires sunlight

In mid 2016, Karen became a Hong Kong Youth Square art ambassador to travel to Dunhuang. Meeting local artists and conservators who specialize in grottoes art. Since that encounter she started to share her art and cultural journey through her artist Facebook page

Karen has continued sharing her adventures in 2017, strongly focusing on South-East Asian heritage art and craft. She is currently absorbing the history of textile art, travelling alone in Malaysia for her independent cyanotype project.
