Artist bio

Originally from Argentina living in Sydney, Australia, when I can tune out from the roles of wife, mum and employee I love to craft. As a child I taught myself how to crochet after observing my BFF\'s mother. I always had to indulge in trial and error as I am lefty, I always persevered and found a way. I have fond memories of crafts in my childhood. I recall paper piecing and canvas work in primary school, and sewing in secondary school. A friend introduced me to cross stitch whilst at university and I have been making cards for decades as my first passion was paper. I like to dabble in all crafts, giving anything a go, at least once anyway. I really enjoy embroidery, paper crafts and yarn projects. Over 20 years ago I discovered the world of miniatures, it encompasses all crafts, it smaller scale. Sewing, knitting, crochet, woodwork and paper craft to name a few, with the added challenge of miniature scale.

I create art because...

my mind is always thinking how to replicate thing small scale. My mind is always curious to try new craft forms.

I am different to most artists because...

I think all artists think they are unique, ironically uniqueness makes us all the same.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

How did she make that? Intrigued by the scale and wander about the process.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

We can find patience and time to create if we truly enjoy the process.
