I was born in Luxembourg on the 2nd of September, 1960. Since my early years of high school, my passion for mathematics and figurative compositions has led me to develop my art with the technique of embroidery. At first, I embroidered my jumpers with designs of my own creation.

Then, at the end of my schooling, I started producing geometric figures and experimented with

the half cross-stitch technique, playing with vibrant colour tones.

Since 2010, I have been creating paintings with art and design computer programs.

The knowledge of these software packages has allowed the creation of canvases with colours and

shapes that were not possible with the half cross-stitch technique. The ability to use digital art

tools allows me to develop my art more and more.

Karin Monschauer  (Locarno  - Switzerland) . Since the early years of high school, my passion for mathematics and for figurative art has led me to develop my art with the embroidery technique. For a first period I embroidered my designs of my creation on my sweaters.
Then at the end of the school I started to reproduce geometric and fantasy figures with the technique of half a point, playing with shades of bright colors.
Since 2010 I started to represent my paintings through art design programs. The knowledge of these software has allowed the creation of canvases with colors and shapes that were not feasible with the half-stitch technique. The possibility of using digital art tools allows me to develop my art more and more.
