My creative world can be broken down into two, equality important parts – spinning and embroidery. Even though those are very different fiber crafts, they are extremely connected in my work – I spin my own yarn which I also use in my embroidery, thus making it more sustainable, unique and made from scratch.
One of the major part of my work is recycling. When you are a maker, it is easy to spot how much waste your creativity is producing. In my case it is whole lot of embroidery floss scraps, yarn scraps, tiny wool bits, knitting waste, small pieces of linen, etc. I could just throw it in a compost or trash bin (because textile waste is not considered recyclable and there is no recycling bin for it), but I chose to reuse it in my art.
