Interview with Crochet and Embroidery Artist Andy of O&Y Studio

Andrea (Andy) of O&Y Studio is a North Carolina fiber artist who creates one-of-a-kind wool floral art. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching as her work develops into a signature style; she fills embroidery hoops with a crocheted background and then adds freehand, textured, organic embroidery atop the crochet to create inspiring works of art. She also combines crochet with driftwood for original wall hangings that would add cozy fun style to just about any home. I was thrilled when she agreed to an interview for the blog.
