you for visiting our site.
We are Istvan Parragh and Ildiko Pataki, the
owners and designers of Vodmochka Graffix embroidery design
company and creators of this website.
How we become embroidery designers?
We always loved animals, especially our german
shepherd, that traveled with us everywhere. After his death,
we wanted to embroider his portrait on our jackets. We wanted
to show his eyes, his personality as paintings and drawings
do. Unfortunately we could not find anybody to do that. We
decided we’ll do it ourselves.
We researched, studied and created our first embroidered portrait
in 1997. Since then we have converted thousands of designs
to embroidery, including portraits.
We won awards in international competitions;
you can find links to them on this page.
Where we come from?
We both have born in Budapest, Hungary. After
many years of traveling all over the World as performers,
we settled in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Our artistic talent was discovered at an early age by talent
searches. We went through many years of vigorous training
both in the physical and mental parts of the artistry. We
have studied many different arts and art history, including
music, performing arts, like dance, pantomime, acting, music
and singing, also painting, drawing, photography, make-up
artistry, choreography, stage lighting, costume design, sewing,
hand embroidery, in several prestigius Artist Academy in Budapest,
thanks to our generous government.
