Today I would like to highlight another contemporary textile artist working with both portraiture and textiles.
Evelin Kasikov’s Portrait Project is a series of stitched portraits based on the same grid. Stitchers will find this artists work interesting as images are created by using different embroidery techniques.
Scroll down the page to see close details, the back of the pieces and enjoy over your morning cuppa.
This morning I thought I would share with you a recent portrait made in lace by artist Pierre Fouché. This page has close up details of the piece. I am sure readers will enjoy seeing his skill. Take some time out and visit Pierre Fouché’s website and investigate his portfolio.
In this video Richard Box demonstrates how he progresses from drawing to finished textile art work using free hand machine embroidery. Even if you do not do machine embroidery there are all sorts of tips and advice about drawing your design on fabric etc
This article caught my eye as the technique is slightly different. The card is quilted first then dyed.
I went on to explore the site. Debbie Babin is a Mixed media textile artist. Do venture further than her tutorials I am sure you will enjoy the eyecandy in her galleries.
