Hello! My name is Shuh. The journey began when I moved from my hometown in Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne for my Fashion Design degree at RMIT University. After graduating and starting a string of retail, admin and random jobs (like selling gelato!), I felt there was something missing… like imagining and dreaming from my thoughts and bringing it to life!
So shuh. was born.
shuh. mixes art with craft to turn colourful objects into usable, wearable and fun keepsakes. Sourcing my inspiration from animations, documentaries, people, hobbies, food and travel; I play with vibrant colour palettes, organic shapes and unexpected silhouettes in different mediums to create unique pieces with purpose. Every shuh. piece is happily made with time, care and intensive labour (of love!).
I believe art is about sharing and collaborating within a creative community. Since the debut of shuh. at the Craft Hatch Market in 2012, I have had super fun opportunities to collaborate with local and international artists, businesses and organisations. My highlights have been creating souvenirs for MOMA Museum, hosting a shuh. pop up shop at Limedrop, designing custom prints for Halycon Nights, collaborating on a jewellery collection with Gorman, and hosting craft workshops at NGV.
shuh. is an ever evolving life project, and my notebook is always filled with new ideas. Currently shuh. encompasses a kaleidoscope of jewellery, illustrations, homewares, clothing, stationery and ceramics, all designed in my home-based studio in Melbourne.
Please feel free to contact me for collaborations, customised work and stockist enquiries. I can’t wait to create with you.
