This is a quick hello to let you know I have not forgotten about you – work is progressing steadily on the new book and taking up my every waking hour!
In 2011 I did an interview with Cayce Zavaglia. Cayce was originally an oil painter but when her first child was born she decided to try painting these portraits in thread as she was concerned about the toxicity of paint around a baby. You can read all about it here:
I decided to visit Cayce’s website to see what she has been up to and found that she has included several new stunning portraits into her portfolio and that her work is now represented by one of the premier art galleries in New York. From humble beginnings come great things!
In an interview with My Modern Metropolis Blog she shared some inside information on the actual workings of each piece which may be of interest – you can read about it here: New Incredibly Realistic Embroidered Portraits.
I hope you are inspired by these wonderful examples of embroidery as art and look forward to chatting to you as soon as time allows. Meantime wherever you are be it winter, spring, summer or autumn have a wonderful week and many happy stitching hours. Trish
