“Vladimira Cmorej grew up in Slovakia, surrounded by arts and crafts. She graduated with an Art Education Degree and has experience in the field of decorative interior painting and textile design. Having mastered hand knitting and sewing at a young age, she found knitting as one of the best means of expressing herself. She enjoys the process of creating the fabric and garment by using stitches, color and texture as well as the balance between the tranquility of knitting and pattern writing. Her designs are synonymous with elegance, feminity, sensibility and sometimes extravagance. She lives alternately in Canada and Slovakia and devotes her time to self-publishing and designing for yarn companies”. [From the artist’s website/ Du website de l’artiste].
