My first approach to pattern making was very young with my mom in her lamp factory, where we created different mold patterns for different lamp collections.

The hardest part about creating an embroidery pattern from a face is to know where exactly each tone goes. this part of the process could be done using vectors on Illustrator, but I prefer to draw the lines myself to get more detail.

My chosen technique for my personal art work is Punch needle embroidery, with which I create portraits.

I like to cut the frames myself to be able to get the exact size I want, and sometimes I like to experiment with dying my own yarn for the portraits. 

A piece this big could take easily 100 hours of work, from the pattern design to the final framing.
Resulting in a lot of commitment to the entire process.
