Insta love - Flor Samoilenco


Happy Monday guys! 

Here's another of the inspiring accounts I love following on instagram.

flor.samoilenco is an economist by profession and a crafter by passion. She designs wall hangings with tapestry crochet and intarsia, in which she pours her favorite inspirations: geometric shapes, nature, abstract art and architecture.

"With tapestry crochet or jacquard I found the way of combining crochet with home decor, in a modern and kind of minimalist way that separates from the traditional. 

This technique came to me in a time of my life where I was struggling a lot with anxiety and stress, and it really is amazing how creating something with our hands can help. 

Making something that I love helped me feel better to make decisions that change my life for the better. I decided to leave behind my 9-to-5 job to focus on working freelance on stuff that I actually like doing, anywhere in the world (and I feel incredibly lucky for being able to do this)."
