Mariana Ivanova is a Californian artist specialized in cross stitch art. An important feature of her works is that they are created with a needle and a thread instead of a brush. Walking the streets of cities around the world she gets inspired by street lamps with their beauty, elegance, and a bit of mystery. Her works combine her interest in visual art, cross stitching and street culture.
Creating an original cross stitch picture is a difficult work involving the creation of a pattern digitally and effective sewing. A work can take up to several months. Mariana's works were exhibited in numerous exhibitions and were featured in art magazines.
Mariana Ivanova was born in Bulgaria. Currently she resides in Orange County, California with her family and stubborn Cairn Terrier dog.
