Hand Embroidery

Hand Embroidery

Designer by day, Needlework Ninja by night. Being a designer, collaborating with groups of people on projects for a varied audience, can be fantastic! However, working quickly within tight deadlines and with outside influences on projects whose final product is often transient/temporary has led me to seek an artistic outlet that allows me to slow down, use more of my senses, enjoy the solitude, and produce a small, tangible, personal object. Needle and fiber provide a tactile joy - and also the slowest manner of drawing imaginable.
