Part of the pattern

Part of  the pattern is created with intricate embroidery work on top of a digital print. The model always has some relation to me and I try to capture the facial expressions in order to create a serene atmosphere suited for the purpose. The pattern symbolizes everything that constricts a woman in any stage of her life.  Becoming a part of the pattern is in many ways losing your own identity as an individual.
