Flower Girl: Hand-Embroidered Illustration
I’m super proud to present my first hand-embroidered illustration!
It’s been really fun to have learnt a new skill in 2019, especially one that is so old school and time-consuming! It’s been a welcome change to purely digital illustration which from start to finish can be so quick; punch-needle embroidery certainly taught me to have more patience!
Craft has had a really good year in 2019 with lots of different types of embroidery really coming back into the mainstream. Young people seem to be resonating a lot more in recent years with DIY culture and analogue forms of expressive art, and that makes me super happy!
You can purchase this one-off embroidered illustration from Bleur - a south London art gallery and collective - https://bleurart.com/artworks/flower-girl/
