i recently started taking an adult art class called stitch & surface. our latest project is an embroidered self portrait, so i've been gathering inspiration from all the amazing textile artists i've found on the web.
one of my new favorites is claire coles. she does absolutely beautiful work... my favorite pieces of hers are embroidery on wallpaper. gorgeous!
she also makes these fantastic embroidered tea cups and mugs... tea + embroidery = love.
