Shortly About Me

Zhanna Plaksina

I've been doing machine embroidery for 6 years. Over the last 2 years I have achieved significant results. Experts call my 3-D portraits are "masterpieces" and consider them the best in the world.

My 3-D portraits are in the Vatican. I received a medal from Pope Francisco, as evidence of the highest assessment of my unique art.

I became the winner of international competitions for 2014 - 2015 years.

Now, I'm sure: I can create the best embroidered portraits in the world for you.

The last two years I have actively perfected your "embroidery skills".
Specialists is appreciated my work very highly.

But today, I open my art not for professionals. I open my embroidery art for you. And I hope that: you will appreciate my work highly also.

I thank you for visiting my site. I wish you happiness and health!

His paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, had a formative influence on Baroque painting.
