Describe Your Style in Three Words?
Colorful, graphic, poetic.
How Did You Learn to Stitch?
I learned with my grandmother when I was a child, in the French countryside. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to stitch now.
What Inspires You?
Landscapes mostly, and I listen to a lot of music while drawing (ambient, folk, electro). Literature also inspires me a lot, especially when it comes to initiatory novels in which nature has an important place.
What Difference Has Stitching Made to Your Life?
For me, stitching represents the pleasure of working with your hands and being focused on an activity that is both simple and demanding.
What's it Like Seeing Your Designs Brought to Life in Stitch?
I love knowing that my designs live their own life, in a new home. It’s fun to imagine someone spending time with my drawings and interpreting it in their own way!
How Do You Choose the Colours for Your Designs?
It depends on my mood. Mostly, I work with color in a very intuitive way without any particular rules. Sometimes, I also dig into the color palettes I create in my sketchbooks or on my graphic tablet and I see which colours match together.
