A painter specializing in watercolors, Sylviane Joseph has discovered acrylic colors and their vivid shades, inspiring her to get back to children painting. Hired by "Les Ours de Sissi", she has also drawn other subjects, more suitable for adults, but always using enchanting colors and delicate and refined lines, just like the ones used for these matryoshka dolls.
A textile designer, Cécile Pozzo di Borgo likes playing with her color shade, to create unique masterpieces and sign them with her name or under the name of Aziliz Création. She's always interested in anything concerning flosses and loves spreading ancient craft techniques, restyling them following today's trends. She's the one charting Sylviane's drawings, for the joy of any stitcher.
