Two words which inspire me are Embroidery Art``. I have been crazy about knitting, sewing and embroidery of all kinds since I was a child, thanks to my grandmothers and mother. In 2005 I began to design embroidery by numbers, initially with relatively “regional” designs, then extending my range to other styles, based especially on my cats, inspired by Wallis, my Siamese cat and his voluptuous fi gure. Gradually, I adopted the technique of “painti ng” with my own threads. Then I developed a collection of “traditional” embroidery designs. In 11 years I have met some fantastic people who have inspired me to develop my designs.
