Embroidered Portraits

“Stitch by stitch and color by color St. Louis based figurative artist Cayce Zavaglia utilizes her background as a painter to embroider excruciatingly detailed portraits that look almost like photographs. The process, which she refers to as a “renegade approach to embroidery”, begins with a photo-shoot consisting of 100-150 portraits from which she selects the best image and then moves to the canvas where she works with one ply embroidery thread on Belgian linen to create each piece which is often not larger than 8″ x 10″. I highly encourage you to watch the video above by Garrett Zavaglia to see quite a bit more detail about how she works.” These are stunning!
