On Etsy since 2008

illustrating life coloring with needle

illustration + fibers + screenprint + embroidery

Starting my etsy back in 2008 while moving around the country each year like a nomad, allowing me to work from home having a kind of portable job.
That way and the love for the printmaking process, my passion for the Gocco was born and the possibility of making more serious printmaking art from the portable Japanese 70's toy.
Then came the embroidery, old love heritage from the university and from the fiber art classes. Started embroidering sketchbooks mixing with ink or pencil color until I found the old wooden hoop from my grandmother. In 2010 I started to combine my characters and trees illustrations into the screen print on fabric, coloring them with the thread plus framing them with the main wooden hoop.

At the end of 2012 settled on a mission to recover grandparent's land that burned on a fire. Meanwhile was another huge fire and the wish of the return of a forest remains while my work as a visual artist accompanies the days in the field and vice versa. All make sence.

At the moment my studio room is improvised, I created a cozy space in the attic of the home to do my screen prints and I embroider mostly at night settled among the warm of bonfire. My goal is to re-build the sheep's stone shelter next to the house into a working plus library space.

Here's a Gocco tutorial made by etsy lab years ago:

A fantastic article featuring Gocco artists from around the world:
