"Expressing my creativity through fibers and painting, one piece at a time"
I am a young Fiber Artist who enjoys experiencing with all kind of materials and tools. I have always been inquisitive and this curiosity is transcribed in my art. While studying abroad in Brazil for my bachelor, I learned the basics of macrame knotting and in 2019, I opened my Etsy shop. I often work with wood because it allows me to express another form of creativity and allow me to work with different tools. All my wooden signs are made and hand cut by me, making each one a unique piece for your home. I usually draw inspiration from nature and animals, and the things that surround me.

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I'm usually inspired by the things I see, for example watching planet earth (which inspired me for my woodland pieces). I usually like to explore an idea and take the time to create it, which usually involves cutting the piece in wood, drilling holes in it and then knotting macrame."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I would say that I want people to feel comfort. I think my pieces are cozy and gentle, they are warming the environment that they are put in. A lot of them are also perfect for nurseries."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I think I didn't realize how difficult owning a small business is. I didn't create macramat as a business at first but only a way to show my art. It then became a business and the marketing aspects of it can be challenging. I'm also always comparing myself to others, feeling like I am not as great as the others. But I am working hard to change this mindset!"
