“My name is Maide, I live and work in the Chianti, one of the most beautiful areas in Tuscany. Up to a few months ago I was a teacher, but, as I have been always interested in hand made objects, after various experiences (embroidery, stone painting, restoration work etc.) I have recently discovered the world of miniatures, which I became immediately enthusiastic about because it allows me to combine my many hobbies. I started by creating miniature paper flowers, copying from the real ones in my garden. Nowadays I dedicate my time mostly to cross-stitch and petit point miniature embroideries with which I make little pictures, cushions , carpets and small pieces of furniture.”
