Art embroidery, engraving… two modes of artistic expression that call on creativity, imagination and a certain search for perfection in the execution of the work.

Elisabeth Dandavino had the chance to learn Glazik embroidery with Pascal Jaouen, founder of the School of Quimper in France. The artist says that she was immediately drawn to this technique, which consists of filling pre-drawn spaces with relatively simple stitches. Then she discovered linocut with a remarkable teacher, Vladimir Midvichi. In addition to the joy of learning a new artistic discipline, she creates links between art embroidery and engraving.
From an inspiration, draw to embroider, tell a story, play with shimmering colors, repeat the same gesture a hundred times to obtain the perfect point, harmony, so that the eye savors each bit of the work and everywhere discover a detail, a surprise, an unexpected element...
Or draw to engrave, hatch the project born of a photo, a landscape, a dream or a memory, hesitate between a thousand and one ways of dealing with the subject, in naive, stylized, realistic mode, to finally starting to cut the plate for hours, adding details, purifying, always to achieve harmony and balance that will delight the eye.
