I am a mathematician by education but I am also a great lover of fine arts and crafts. One of my true pleasures is making tapestry crochet bags. I love their woven-like texture but I love “weaving” a story in to a pattern most. Like a story, you don’t know how it’s going to turn out in the end, how the colours will compliment each other to make a stunning result.
Then one day I decided to make my own designs. I don’t follow specific trends, fashions or themes. I am inspired by many different things. I listen to the voice of my soul and allow my heart to lead me on my next design adventure. All of my designs are adjusted to create tapestry crochet projects although they can be used for any counted craft: cross stitch, filet crochet, knitting, mosaic, beading, etc.
There are two art styles that most inspire my creativity: art deco and art nouveau. I find great inspiration in the elegant geometrical forms and logic of art deco as well as the natural floral curved lines and organic forms of art nouveau. They are a perfect reflection of my analytical and poetic sides!
Almost all of my patterns are modular elements allowing for four-way repeated patterns that produce unexpected beautiful rhythmic images! Go ahead use my images as your heart desires, be your own design guru. It makes me happy to know that my patterns have inspired your next dream project. I’d love to hear from you!
This design was inspired by the art nouveau era of glorious styles and decorations with its philosophy of nature as an endless source of design ideas. It can be used in whole or part, as a repeat pattern, on all types of accessories, interiors and clothing.
