Originally from Hong Kong, Lily Yung was an active member of the Toronto arts community for many years. She was a founding members of *new* gallery, co-producer of the Talk Craft lecture series, a contributor to Craft journals,  and is the 2010 recipient of the prestigious John Mather Award for Lifetime Achievement from Ontario Crafts Council. While completing her Ph. D. in Immunology at the University of Alberta, Lily studied printmaking and subsequently began designing and making jewellery.  In 2004, she received an Artist in Residence for Research project grant (supported jointly by the Canada Council for the Arts and the National Research Council of Canada), that launched her exploration into the design and fabrication of objects through Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM). Her main focus of her textile work was the creation of unique and limited edition works using Rapid Prototyping (RP) systems, though she also utilized die and laser cutting, CNC milled molds for casting and water jet cutting in her work. The aim of her design work was to integrate the skills of the craft artist and the technologies of manufacturing.
