Graphic designer in Paris, I practice quilling, or quelling,
since late 2013 after discovering this art while strolling on the net.
Quelling in English means "choke", "suppressing", "mitigate" or "calm".
I will keep to describe what brings me this practice the last definition,
although it may also alleviate some nervousness that can sometimes live in me.
As for Quilling can be translated as "caning" which means in sewing:
winding thread on a bobbin.
Here I prefer the paper and nothing but paper!
