Larissa Orfanidou was born in Kazakhstan on 15 October 1968. Now, she lives in Greece. Larisa is a professional wool artist and writer. Her mission is to create art that reflects a passion for life and a positive approach to every aspect of today’s realities.
Sharing passion and happiness with the rest of the world will only make it grow stronger. She feels privileged to have found two things that She loves in life: poetry and painting with alternative materials. She has been writing poems and songs in Kazakhstan since She was seven years old and started her wool art journey a few years ago.
Initially, She has been making wool paintings for herself, then for friends and family, and now She decided to share her creations with the world.
Her creations are made only from organic materials.
Wool is the primary material used in all my paintings, complemented by natural silk for the additional accents and pure cotton that serves as a base.
She uses multiple techniques to create every canvas, including dry, wet and mixed wool twisting.
Wool art is a great present; you can give it to adults, kids, friends, colleagues, parents and your loved ones. This present will be ideal for any occasion including birthdays, weddings, housewarmings or it could be just a present for Yourself!
