“ALESSIA’S EMBROIDERIES

I started embroidering paper many years ago and then switched to canvas.

I found it relaxing and introspective.

Embroidering with this ‘throw stitch’ technique, if you can call it that, I now find it my meditative and creative space. I never start from a basic design, I start from the blank canvas and thread after thread I recreate dense wefts, which recreate geometries or patterns and the canvas slowly takes shape.

I like to create works of art and so I like to call myself part artist.

I believe it is right that every creative mind has a personal space to reveal the most interesting parts of its imagination and creativity.

And in this world of interweaving there is definitely me.
