whilst flipping through some books for inspiration i came across some artists which i thought were relevant to my work... i am creating 8 samples which are intended to be made into cushions, each inspired by a different state/city etc
i really wanted to focus on free hand machine embroidery and make it really tactile and messy i dont want it to look all neat and perfect thats not very me
anyway here is where i found some inspiration...

Marloes Duyker
I like all the loose threads left on her work making it seem kind of unfinished and playful

Eleanor Bowley

i like the unevenness of the stitches, she achieves this by working from back to front making the final outcome very unpredictable

Sandrine Pelletier

my favourite is the bottom piece with all the messy threads left on
