    That is amazing. The texture and movement create something real and unique. So cool!

  • Liz

    Whoa!! These are incredible. Thanks for sharing!

  • Beautiful. At first glance thought they were strokes of paint.. this is much more original, and this method is even more trying!

  • So great! Just went to the website, the back of her embroideries looks super rad also.

  • MarioOrazioDario

    My mum said it was commonplace for her and her friends to be creative in silk embroidery when they were children. This artist seems to have taken the art to a new level.

  • So amazing! Also went to her website to see the backsides… I’m really glad she chooses to present the backs as separate pieces of art themselves. Make sure to check them out!
