Character Creations Designs, Cross Stitch Patterns
Before starting Character Creations, I was working in an embroidery and patchwork shop. While there I did several private commissions creating cross stitch designs from personal photographs using computer charting software. The success of these led to me starting out as an independent designer. My first charts were created from personal photographs and later I moved on to using art in the public domain. After deciding to concentrate on designing full time, I contacted a number of artists both in New Zealand and overseas, gaining the license to chart their artwork.
