I’m Arlene Lorenzo and I’m self taught embroidery artist.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I currently live in San Antonio, TX with my two kids.
I have early childhood memories of hand sewing with a needle and thread. It wasn’t until October 2017; that I decided to teach myself how to embroider something other than a running stitch. I was looking for a creative outlet and the minute I learned a few stitches I couldn’t stop embroidering.
This is how my embroidery wall art was born. Each piece is free-styled; I don’t use patterns and this allows me to express myself through colors and shapes. When I’m not stitching, you can find me hiking, dancing, trying out new restaurants or exploring the city.
