Sheena Liam (born 7 May 1991) as Liam Yue Sheen is an international fashion model of Malaysian Chinese descent and being the winner of the second cycle of Asia’s Next Top Model.
She is also a prominent fiber artist and is known for her embroideries of feminine figures on the Instagram page Times New Romance. Her embroideries are stunning and beautiful.
“It’s given me this whole new perspective that if I just keep doing, I can make anything in my head happen,” she said to Teen Vogue.
Her mother taught her when she was young but she found it boring and repetitive.
“I travel and model a lot so I´m always filling up the slow times with any classes I can get into, in whatever city I´m stuck in. I was in Singapore drawing a lot for a zine I wanted to produce. I had an idea for an embroidered piece with the braids hanging out of the frame. People were really excited about it, so I kept making them.”
But why her work mostly consists of feminine figures with a focus on their hair? “I´ve always drawn girls since I was a child. I love portraits and faces, bodies and hands. I never meant for it to be hair-focused, the hair was always more to accentuate movement or to bring a certain sort of soul to the pieces.”
Are any of the woman depicted in your designs people from your real life? “They´re mostly me. I work off photographs and I found it hard to direct models so I just started posing for myself. I like awkward poses, delicate hands, body language.”
Are the embroideries artworks available for purchase? “I don´t sell my pre-existing pieces; they´re mine and represent such a huge part of me. I´m not racing to just pawn them all off. Sometimes when a collector writes me and they have a story which resonates with me, I´d do a commission. I want to create pieces for people who love the work as much as I do.”
Sheena Liam has tied the knot with renowned Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. Both announced the marriage on their respective Instagram accounts on Saturday (July 14) night. The marriage registration took place in Lithuania.
In the post that was geo-tagged Vilnius, which is the capital of Lithuania, Liam is sporting the Essex dress, a pistachio green lace number by New York designer Sandy Liang.
They got engaged in July 2017 when Zacharevic proposed with a giant mural. Sheena shared on her Instagram posting that she responded with “Can” to Zacharevic’s marriage proposal.
