Welcome!

I am a student at UCT, from Cape Town, trying to get through the long process of becoming a doctor.

About me
I’ve never been good at much in my life – I’m not sporty or interested in sports (all I know is that some Wenger guy is always out), I am relatively not the smartest tool in the box since I left high school (university humbles you fast) and I don’t have any outstanding talents. However, I discovered an interest of mine and this is what has led us here. I’ve been sewing since I was 5, but only over the past year have I invested a significant amount of time and energy into this hobby. Scroll down to see some of the pieces I’ve created, and maybe they will inspire you to choose something for yourself.
Why embroidery?

Although life can be stressful at times, I have a few outlets and means of expression which help me relax and provide a useful service to you. I love drawing and sewing, and embroidery is the merging point of those two things. It is the medium through which I express my creativity and sometimes embrace my unwillingness to study, because it is an excellent way to procrastinate. I particularly love making things for other people, because I know the effort I put into a piece will be appreciated if it is tailored specifically to someone’s taste and interests. The more I embroider, the more my skills expand, so feel free to request absolutely anything and we can discuss how to make something unique and special for you.

What else?
Another thing I do is draw simple line portraits of people, like the image of me on the left. These are perfect for profile pictures or printed on canvases. These pictures are really cute and aesthetically pleasing to me, so I’d love to make one for you. I spend a lot of time, close to two hours, perfecting each picture I make to ensure I capture the right amount of detail in the right way. Once I’m done drawing, I can place the drawing over any background of your choice. Scroll down to see a few of these that I have already made of my loved ones and me.

If I weren’t me, I’d follow me. Just saying.

Unfortunately, I am me, so I cannot follow myself. However, you have the fortune of being able to. Maybe you already know me from Twitter. If you don’t, free to follow me on this platform because I love sharing my experiences as a student, a millennial, and a general human to anyone who can relate. I don’t take many things seriously and I search until I find the humour in every situation.

My Embroidery

Each piece I make is 100% unique, so that every one of my customers has their own special item which they know is one-of-a-kind. I use ideas from the internet and my own imagination, but I mainly make things that people request. Below you will see some of my creations. Get inspired!

Wait. There’s more.

Conveniently, I don’t only embroider. I can make the perfect avi or profile picture for you, too. Feel free to enquire about that, or any other ideas you seek to be created. Chances are I can make what you need, and I’m willing to do it for you. 

Graphic Portraits

Here are some of the simple line portraits I’ve done so far. These are perfect for social media profile pictures or printed on canvases. I can make one from any relatively close-up photograph of someone.

Once I’ve completed it, you’re welcome to enquire about getting your portrait embroidered as well.

What do you need?

Just a picture of you or your loved one and a hint of the type of background you’d like.

If you need an order to be done by a certain date, be sure to place it at least 2 months in advance.
