Roman Mosaic Embroidered Portrait Textile Art



This hand stitched embroidery is a creative piece of wall art inspired by a Roman mosaic. 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 embroidery threads in many tiny stitches in a wide range of colours to give the effect of a mosaic. I have used browns and coppers, a touch of gold and neutral colours.

This is a unique handmade item as no two pieces are ever quite the same. I have called it ‘Roman Mosaic’.

This piece of textile wall art is on a piece of pure linen, which is hemmed. 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 22.5 x 36cm (9 x just over 14 inch), with the stitched area measuring 17 x just over 19cm (7 x almost 8″). A certificate of authenticity will be provided with this work of art.
