Inspired by travels and her Chilean background, artist Katy Biele creates embroideries with bright colors and beautiful designs. I love how her work is rich of playful textures and details. The little knots and beads she includes in many of her pieces give them are a perfect finishing touch that adds a little magic to the fabric.
Currantly based on Vancouver Island, Canada, Katy was introduced to embroidery in the Thar desert of India, where she worked with a group of gypsy ladies. She loves to blend South-America inspired colors into contemporary styles to create one of a kind hoops that have a very recognizabe and unique style.
You can find a lovely selection of works for sale in her Etsy Shop. Want to give embroidery a try yourself? Katy recently launched a DIY pattern which lets you explore colors and experiment with thread. Fun!
