Ell Violet is run by Eloise, a 2015 Visual Communication Design (Hons) graduate from Massey University who currently resides in Wellington, New Zealand.
Since a young age, I have always enjoyed various elements of sewing, whether that be cross stitch or making my own clothes.
Working under my artist name Ell Violet, I draw upon my love of tactile materials and design sensibilities to create my pieces, combining free hand embroidery, paint, fabric and markers. Every single stitch is intentional, every detail is carefully planned out.
My aim is to create pieces that are both mysterious and beautiful, giving life to a world that had previously only existed in imagination. I like to push the boundaries of how we typically perceive embroidery, while still holding on to the intricate details and high level of workmanship that makes it so special.
