About

As an emerging fibre artist and textile designer who dabbles in electronics, Angel Ho strives to innovatively fuse materials and techniques together. Finding material’s role in everyday objects and transforming them into a new product or piece, Ho reaches for further exploration of application. Ho believes designing is a mixture of curiosity, interaction and perseverance.
