What I think about line is..
Line can make a drawing, communication, it can create songs and rhythm, and it can express speed. I like to use parallel lines to make movement and elegant moods in my work. I always think many line patterns are elegant, and this is what we can find easily in our life. Examples of kitchenware, fabric and textiles, household products, fashion inspire me.
