atchwork and uilting

Nelly first managed her own sewing workshop during ten years, then got involved in the art of Patchwork and Quilting. Her numerous creations were realized from traditional techniques; she then developed one based on pleats (or "plissÚs" in French) from which she conceived her works of silk. She is fond of materials that come from varied textures, giving to her work a glistering or precious appearance, depending on the silk used: old, glossy or dull. Nearly all of her confections are elaborated from a pleated center, surrounded by different geometric shapes. The whole work is crossed with lines that emphasize the impression of relief.
