Nadja Berruyer is a contemporary artist who embroiders and engraves.

She masters the Lunéville embroidery technique, an exceptional skill she has deployed in haute-couture and for opera, theater and academic costumes.

At the same time, she has developed her own personal artistic universe: pearls, gold thread and silk thread are organized by her agile fingertips. Her precious paintings recount scenes from fairy tales and fantastic dreams.


Director Aurélie Martin has dedicated a film to her, “Nadja Berruyer, Brodeuse: Les monstres et babayaga”. Available on DVD or VOD atLes mutins de Pangée :https://www.lesmutins.org/nadja-berruyer-brodeuse
