Embroidery – the meditative slowness of creation is my passion and artwork.
I love spending endless hours surrounded by colorful fabric and delicate yarn.
The craftsmanship clears the mind from the busy traffic of thoughts, and after hundreds of French knots, I feel sweet and soft like a marshmallow.
BUT to avoid me falling off completely and ending up as the sleeping beauty passive waiting for a prince with a magically wake-up kiss – who knows if there are any princes left 😉
I have to activate my senses and body flow. And the secret tool to change the energy level is Argentine Tango – trust me, it’s a great way to learn how to take the lead in your own (embroidery)life… !!!
I have been a social dancer for several years as follower (the female part) and that is my favorite role. But when it comes to the art of taking action I take classes as a leader (the male part) – always beginner classes to review and practice
- the basic steps
- improve the balance inside and outside
- pay attention on the music
- feel the connection with my dance partner
- and make the embrace nice and full of trust.
Just with a handful of basic steps I can improvise and create a dance, it can be a soft slow tango or a funny dance with high speed.
I lead first of all from my heart and then together with the rest of my body and imagination.
From here the true passion and playfulness begin.
The tango is like a short story and a conversation between me and my dancepartner – everything can happen during the dance when we follow the music and the dance flow.
The tango experience and learning is always a mirror in my embroidery work.
Once I am familiar with the basic techniques, the possibilities of creation are endless.
I take the lead and follow the music of the stitches. I play around with the shapes and colors, feel the inspiration and connect with my artwork.
This is my way to enjoy the mindfulness work in a combination of flow, passion and energy.
