She has extensively exhibited internationally and won several prizes.

Her teaching experience goes back for mor than 15 years, she has held classes and workshops all over in European countries.

Experience in using sewing machine for straight and free motion stitches is needed. Suggestions and ideas for 3D works and small jewellery pieces will be given as well. Participants will make small samples of each technique using water soluble paper and/or film as a stabiliser.
