Needles are my brushes, threads my pigments and precious fabrics my canvasses. I use these tools to express my creativity in the arts of embroideryand textile.
I live between Italy and Switzerland and I’m married to a Frenchman. I was born and raised in Milan, the heart of fashion and design, and have travelled all over the world.
Today represents the third stage in my professional life. I started off being a paleographer and then became a wine producer for family reasons. These previous lives have connected me to history, nature and ancestral techniques. Already as a child I began creating handmade objects with various media. French and Italian cultures are my roots, deep and strong. I am now at home in a Swiss mountain village, surrounded by silence, nature, rocks and cows. All these different layers of myself enhance my creativity. Every day I use my hands to make uniquely reﬁned artefacts. My clutches and handbags add an elegant touch to your appearance. My embroidered scrolls, cushions, folding screens, all inspired by Japanese culture and techinque, lend serenity to your home
Needles, frames, tambour hooks, awls, tekobari, koma, Japanese scissors, and many more are my daily precious tools.I was trained during the last 20 years in many different embroidery techniques and I met with and learned from embroiderers all round the world. I have attended more than 500 hours training at Haute Couture and Interior Design Lesage School in Paris. To perfect my skills I have attended short courses at the Royal School of Needlepoint in Hampton Court (UK), Hand and Lock (London), Conservatoire des Broderies de Lunéville (Lunéville – France), Accademia Teatro alla Scala (Milano) and many other embroidery schools. I have completed level 10 at Japanese Embroidery Center in Atlanta (USA) and I have attended master classes at Kuranai-Kai workshop in Togane City (Japan). I hold certiﬁed knowledge in natural dye, shibori and textile printing from “Color and Natural Dye Association M.E. Salice” and from Master Yoshiko Wada of the World Shibori Network. I have attended level 1 and 2 of the Japanese Marouﬂage Ura-Uchi technique with Master Jacelyne Derudder (Paris) and a speciﬁc workshop at Masumi School in Tokyo.My conﬁrmed and certiﬁed technique is a seal of quality and preciousness.
