Where did the idea for this art come from?
I was always a very creative and curious kid. I loved to draw, or saw, I always wanted to create something new. My dad, very special person to me, was knitting. I was 7 years old when I started to learn how to knit from him. He was making amazing ,beautiful things. He had a loads of patience to teach me everything what I wanted to know. Now I’m 34 and still knitting, I love it, it reminds me about all the love that my father gave me. He teached me that I can use my imagination to create something beautiful, he was my best friend. He died over 5 years ago, but I will love him forever.
