Vezila Series

I began the Vezila series all the way back in 2002 when I was pregnant with my first child. My studio was being built and I had just given up using oil paint because of the fumes. I had to devise a way of working small and without the chance of spilling acrylic paint in the dining room (which had become my temporary studio). This is when I came up with the idea to “paint” with a needle and thread. I would first do a drawing on paper then poke guide holes to later stitch the thread through. The work was very well received by clients and curators alike. Vezila in Macedonian loosely translates to: made by hand. Later I used the hand-made crochet table decorations by my late mother-in-law as inspiration for the imagery in the work at the end of this series right before I started the Oblik series.
