Welcome to the embroidery part of my work.
Being the latest addition to my skill-set, i taught myself to embroider through youtube and pinterest tutorials , around 3 1/2 years back.
Having spent most days already sewing and coming from a history of regularly painting, illustrating and generally being creative, it seemed just like another skill-set to add to my ever growing portfolio. Little did i know that i would fall head over heels in passion for what people often still refer to as a "dying art".
That description could not be further from the truth, as i quickly learned, when joining the ranks of some equally passionate embroidery artists from around the globe.
When i began to use Instagram as the incredible marketing and networking tool that it is, i came across not only a wonderfully welcoming community of like-minded stitchers, but also an international group of artists, that is incredibly supportive of one another.

4” hand embroidery
Mounted in a 72cm x 42cm Quilting hoop, this incredibly intricate hand embroidery doesn’t just tell the story of women that have come forward during the #metoo momentum of 2017, it speaks of women that survived childhood rape, like Maya Angelou, it reminds us of Jyoti Singh, the young woman who got gang-raped and beaten by 6 men in India on a bus, and died of the subsequent injuries,- it speaks of Islan Nettle and Victoria Carmen White, two transgender women, who did not survive their misogynistic,- transphobic attackers, and it is a stark reminder that we still live in a world ruled by patriarchy, where women are not safe.
