I learned to love embroidery in the village of my mother's grandmother and admired the beautiful works stitched by local women. I was looking at what they were doing and this way I was taught how to create my own designs.

By directing the embroiderer's whole hearted attention to the composition, technique, movement and breathing, embroidery expresses with outmost sincerity the person's inner world.

Usually I embroider cat motifs, for I have a long and lasting love relationship with these creatures.
