Passionate about creating with her hands, Elin began to share her embroidery journey on Instagram (@petronella.art) in 2016. Her work quickly gained large exposure, which has allowed her to dive full-time into the world of artistry.
In 2017, together with her husband Charles (@_charleshenry_), she started to teach their take on modern hand-embroidery in Paris, and has since then hosted courses in cities all over Europe. Since the beginning of 2018 they also released their first online courses enrolling hundreds of students from all over the world. With their first-hand experience, they've realised the power of community and sharing your knowledge, which fuels the couple's motivation to improve and enhance creative learning via Charles and Elin Academy.
"This is hands down the most useful course I've ever taken! It's so motivating to know the keys to make a design of your own and I no longer feel limited by my lack of experience."
