Miss Bobbet's Profile

About

In the beginning...

There was a little girl and her bobbets. Grown-ups called them slippers, but 'bobbets' fitted best. 'Bobbet' was the sound they made, as she dragged her feet across the ground.

The years passed and the little girl grew, but she never did learn not to drag her feet across the ground. And though her bobbets are now slippers, her word has now come to mean anything she wants it to.

Hello,

My name is Iliana, but most of my friends know me as (Miss) Bobbet.

In the beginning...

I spent the first 13 years of my life in Athens, Greece, with my British family. I was a rather small child with a rather odd choice in pastimes - for a 90's child. My Nana taught me how to backstitch, cross-stitch, and knit. While my school-friends climbed trees and played basketball; I sat sewing trees, flowers, and little portraits.

A little later...

In 1999, I moved to Chesterfield, England - my grandad's hometown. I spent my time in Chesterfield as a small and awkward teenager; not knowing where I fitted in, I abandoned sewing and knitting for a while. At 16, I applied to Chesterfield College to study ND Fine Art, as my grandad and his parents had done before me. There I found some amazing friends who accepted me for all my small quirks, and my hand-knitted scarves.

Now...

I live in the City of Discovery, with my partner and our daughter – my biggest fan. I am still rather small, and rather odd - if truth be told. I like a quiet life, and I'm happiest when I'm creating. My ragdolls, like their creator, are hand-sewn on the tiny side and every aspect of their being reflects my current mood and fancy. I believe we should all try to remember and celebrate our inner child. That is why my artwork and embroidery is in a naive style; influenced by my life in Greece and Britain, and of course, the people I've met along the way.
