storytellers - a larger embroidery artwork
I knew the title for this one early on - they wanted to be playful and slightly mysterious too.... with their little puppets and their intricate dreaming supporting cast....
I've been on such a stitching journey recently - it has been interesting to be really working intensely and carefully on some more detailed larger works. It felt important to me to work on a couple or so at a time, to see how they may 'feed into' each other, but also so that I could perhaps go deeper and really get lost in the stitches! Looking at this work now I am pleased indeed that I chose that regal blue for the central figure and I particular enjoy their expressions - I just hope you do too.... There's so much that could be said but I want you to find the stories and I don't like to impress too much meaning, it's for you to find if you wish.......
So I have just updated my shop with all the new work - three special embroidery artworks and few new gouache sketches too
hope you enjoy your weekend x
