Like a painter filling a canvas, Karen loves seeing her ideas become a reality beneath her needle.
“I love to use colours in my work and the fact that with beaded embroidery you begin with a clear palette and you finish with something that is sparkly, textured and alive, and visually delicious.”
Karen Torrisi has been embroidering professionally since 1994. Her embroidery has graced the Haute Couture catwalks in Paris, sparkled under lights on West End theatres stages in London & Australia, her embroidery won 1st in the International Hand & Lock embroidery prize open category.
She is a published author and teaches bead embroidery all around the world.
