Last year, I immersed myself in the amazing process of embroidery. I was inspired by punk, stencils, Frida Kahlo and my own illustrations. Most of them were sold at an independent designers store in Chile called Corazon Bordado (Embroidered Heart). Once I came back to California, I turned the ones I had left into pillows, but that is for another post.
I really loved the creative process of embroidery. I love the sound of the needle when it makes contact with the fabric; it's magical! I also love that is such a mobil medium that you can carry your embroidery hoop everywhere you go. That's why I called this series "The Traveling Embroideries". They were made in between continents, offices, airplanes, beach home, in the city, and finally at my home.
