Wu Yuling was born in Dashe Village (Dawaran tribe), Sandimen Township, Pingtung County, Taiwan. As a child of the Sun (generally translated as the leader) of the Paiwan tribe, she has been exposed to traditional clothing and jewelry since she was a child, and learned weaving skills. When I was young, I would work in a jewelry store by chance, and started to get in touch with craft design, and tended to the road of learning modern jewelry. Its creative forms include weaving, craft design, jewelry and jewelry design. In recent years, it has turned to soft sculpture and installation art. Her works contain the keynote of women’s self-narration. Women are independent individuals, but they are also an indispensable center for gathering the public in terms of ethnicity and inheritance. The imagery of the early works mostly showed a sense of magnificence and dignity in full bloom; until the impact of the August 8 typhoon in 2009, the tribesmen were forced to migrate, and then the creation turned to a deeper connotation, in order to unite the tribesmen, heal them, and let them recover.
