Polina Laamanen is an embroidery and textile artist. She wrote a book about 3D embroidery that was published by EKSMO in August 2020.
She creates one of a kind hand stitched artworks and original ebooks and tutorials.
In 2016 after changing big city life to countryside she found her unique way of embroidering birds which began a whole career of self employed artist. Most popular hand embroidered jewellery from that time was hen brooch - it was created in many different colour combinations and more than 200 copies.
Over the years Polina established her own recognisable embroidery style where thread painting is combined with hand modified textile. All collected experience Polina shared in series of online workshops with over 3000 participants.
At the moment Polina is working on collection of artworks which combine Scandinavian graphics and realistic botanical embroidery.
