Program and Workshop

Ekaterina Sinchinova

The Artist:

Ekaterina Sinchinova is a full-time embroidery artist living in Rockville, MD. She creates landscapes in her own unique stitch style without using hoops or frames in the process. She is a self-taught embroidery artist and has been creating her own landscape pieces since 2018. Drawing on inspiration from the mass greenery along the roads, city parks, and squares where she lives and influenced by Asian Art, especially Japanese prints, Ekaterina has created several different techniques in embroidery. She creates landscapes using the thinnest needles, and various types of stitches and threads, including threads for machine embroidery, to help her create realistic landscapes. Every new piece of art she creates not only allows her to further develop technique but also gives her the opportunity to create new methods.

Ekaterina’s works have been published in such online publications and magazines as Colossal, 365ART+, What Women Create, Netolabo, and others.
