Olga Prinku came up with the idea of flowers-on-tulle embroidery in 2016, inspired by her love of wreath-making and fashion. Her early experiments with embroidering dried flowers into tulle fabric took off on Instagram, leading to collaborations with brands such as Anthropologie and Swarovski.
Olga loves to forage for flowers, grasses and foliage on walks near her home in North Yorkshire, where she lives with her husband and son. She is constantly experimenting with new ways of combining natural materials into artworks, homewares and wearables.
Inspired by her background in graphic design and the folk art and handicrafts of her country of birth, Moldova, Olga’s work has been exhibited in galleries and festivals.
Olga’s first book, DRIED FLOWERS EMBROIDERY, will be published by Quadrille in 2021.
