Fiberarts Studios Contest


Tiziana Tateo
Vigevano, Italy

My studio originally was a shoe workshop that I have renovated some years ago. It measures about 70 square meters and is located in a beautiful garden near the independent house where I live. I personally painted the inside and outside walls in warm and cold colors: yellow and orange for the fireplace side and green for the opposite side in order to harmonize with garden leaves. There are two rooms: one small for dyeing and painting, one larger where I sew, study, and work at the computer. Antique furniture is used to collect and organize my tools, books, and works. My inspirations come from different sources. I enjoy manipulating materials, painting, distressing, and burning, completing my works with free machine embroidery. The favorite aspects of my studio are the absolute silence that surrounds me, the colors in my garden, and the company of my lovely cat.
