The Artist from Within

When Stitches Speak

I write with stitches to tell my story… A story that is told through a universal language….which is simply the language of  Art….. I use my pen to draw cross stitches which have become my language ……grouped together they form symbols and designs that speak my mind…..after so many conversations in ordinary languages, I discovered that my stitches speak a better language understood by feelings, presented by beauty…..they carry a softer voice, convey messages, recount my past, preserve my heritage, shed light on my history, create dialogues and spread awareness to my cause….in short human communication is born….

Because it comes from within…. It is hence the language of Love, Beauty and Art….that can be universally understood, felt, admired and appreciated in a very serene and peaceful way.

I invite you to speak my language….. 

For humanity’s sake…..

The Birth

One of the keys to fulfill one’s dream is to “Believe”. Believing in one’s ability. Listening to the heart, to the inner voice that keeps humming inside us, pushing to try, not to be afraid of failure, not to shy away or suppress ideas….and continue to feed this belief with “Confidence”.

The other key is to “Pursue” this belief and put it into practice… to try over and over again tirelessly, to do better, driven by the belief and armed with confidence until success….

In the year 2005 I had one of my dreams come true….driven by passion and motivation from within, I enjoyed the birth of my new art….. After several trials and errors I finally succeeded. This gave me the utmost satisfaction of accomplishment and a true meaning for being. I realized that we are all born for a reason, discovering it is knowing one of the answers of the many questions of existence. In conclusion I believe each human being has a mission in life and when it is revealed, the dream becomes true. It was revealed to me……
