Tonight is my first Vancouver Guild of Fabric Arts meeting of the year and Kirsten Chursinoff is speaking. She is definately one of my favourite people and embroiderers. Her talk will be held at the Aberthau Community Centre in Vancouver at 7:00.
Kirsten has been working with very detailed embroidery for a number of years. She is one of those people who takes simple materials and turns them into something awesome. Everything she touches is like that. She combines skill and technique with a natural talent to create beauty.
Kirsten and I went to Capilano College together and I got to witness lots of her work from tiny sketches to yardages of fabric. Her work is always quite exceptional in terms of delicacy and sensitivity. She has an ability to see colour like few people do. Her presentation is thoughtful and her themes are interesting and riveting.
Kirsten is now writing regularily for magazines like Quilters Art.
