This hand stitched embroidery is a creative piece of wall art inspired by a stone statue and hieroglyphs. To make it I printed an image onto linen, then stitched by hand using contemporary stitching. In this piece of textile art, I have used a variety of silk and cotton embroidery threads in many small stitches in a wide range of blues and golds.
This is a unique handmade item as no two pieces are ever quite the same. I have called it ‘Egyptian Princess’.
This piece of textile wall art is on a piece of pure linen, which is unhemmed. You might frame it or mount it as a piece of art. You are buying the hand stitched art only. It could be used to make a bag, cushion or a centre piece for an innovative quilt for your own personal use.
As a textile artist, I am interested in portraying emotion, texture and using contemporary stitch as a means of expression. My stitching is entirely spontaneous.
The piece measures 29 x 36cm (just under 12 x just over 14 inch), with the stitched area measuring 18.5 x just over 28cm (just under 8 x just over 11″). A certificate of authenticity will be provided with this work of art.
