Silvia's Profile

About

ABOUT ME
I'm Silvia, a 37 years old girl who lives in Italy, in the beautiful Sicily, an island in the Mediterranean sea.
I come from northern Italy, but I move to south to live with my love.
I'm a teacher and a touristic guide with a degree in history of art and a very strong passion for what is beautiful, with a story (like my materials), rustic, made by hands, connected to nature.
My sewing reflects these passions!
I create objects in eco-friendly materials inspired to nature.

MY CREATIVE STORY
When I was a little child, I tried to discover my creative way by painting, drawing, making big doll's houses, knitting and crocheting.
As a girl I liked better reading a lot of good novels, fascinated by other people imagination.
And I watched nature, and its marvellous perfection, and studied art at university in Italy.
At 32 years old I found my way in sewing and I discovered how to talk about myself through this interesting art!
I also understood that I could do an eco-conscious handicraft and recycle old fabrics, giving them a new beautiful life, instead of wasting new planet's resources for my work.
So I took this creative path and I'm still finding new things while I'm walking.

NOT ONLY SEWING
I'm rediscovering self-expression and creativity in different activities that make me happy: wrinting, journaling, drawing, knitting, photographing and documenting daily life.
