what is stitchart?
Stitch art is a fusion of painting and stitching, where each creation starts with a photograph.
A photograph taken in moments of which I was a part and that appealed to me through their composition, simplicity or authenticity.
My ambition is to bring these scenes to life, to give them fresh depth and an added dimension, with vivid colours and a clear structure.
The aim is not to reproduce the original image, but to transform and enhance a scene in a way that renders it unique, so as to make it my own.
I have a hands-on approach, I like to feel the canvas, painting mainly with my fingers and often incorporating other media. Working with large canvases on a sewing machine can be awkward, but very gratifying!
