Back in April, we introduced you to Nicholas Rouke, one of our very own staff members who is a talented photographer in his own right. Well, there is so much talent here at the studio that we decided to delve in a little further.
Meet Christina’s Crocheted Characters
Christina Piraneo has been working with Charles Fazzino for more than two decades as an Art Assistant. But, as we recently found out, her true passions collide with her favorite hobby: Crocheting and Animals. She’s been crocheting for as long as she can remember, but about 7 or 8 years ago, she was looking for a unique gift for a friend’s baby shower…and the light bulb went off. She started crocheting animals. Over the years, she’s created them both for herself and for friends who have commissioned baby gifts. We think she should do them for EVERYONE!
Just take a look at how beautiful and adorable these are. We just love them and it’s obvious that Christina has developed her own signature style and look for the animals.
So far, Christina hasn’t found an animal she can’t crochet into a lifelike cuddly creation! Some take her a few hours while others take her a few weeks to complete. If you’re interested in commissioning your very own Crocheted Character, drop Christina an email at Iluvmischief@gmail.com.
