A graduate in Fine Arts, in 2004 I began to design for the brand „Au Chat Qui Dort“ (“The Sleeping Cat”) aft er 10 years in children’s illust- rati ons. I transform my illustrati ons into embroidery designs based oncross-sti tch and traditi onal embroidery. I also design soft furnishings, cott on fabrics and texti les for children. Aft er going back to school to learn embroidery, I became an embroidery teacher and facilitator. For more than 14 years I have been teaching various embroidery techniques to those who wish to learn or improve their embroidery skills. In 2017, I established the fi rst Embroidery Festi val which sti ll takes place today.
