I really do love stitching by hand and working with color. My mind is peaceful when embroidering. Instead of counting rows and stitch repeats I am making design decisions. It is the closest thing to drawing I can do and I believe it is the perfect way for me to make art.
The inspiration for these works comes from knit and crochet stitches and the way they appear in doilies and table runners. I like to do the stitching improv style without a sketch, but with a design in mind and build upon the stitches as I embroider them.
There was a nice, young man at the AC Moore where I purchased the mats and frames who knew his merchandise and helped me find the best matches for my work. Thank you Keith! Another young man who graduated from the PAFA Post-Baccalaureate program also gave me great advice for my frames. Thank you Matt! They both are artists and they both take their day jobs seriously and know what they are doing. The work that is for sale arrives framed (and most are matted) and there are additional pictures of the finished items in my Etsy Shop.
In celebration of the Grand Re-Opening of my Etsy Shop there is a coupon code (GRANDREOPENING) for a 20% discount. Please take a look--more will be coming!
