2 headed monster.

I feel a little like a 2 headed monster today so I thought it was a good day to feature the very fabulous embroidery work of Jaclyn Rose also known as holiday tart. I somehow fell upon Jaclyn's work on etsy and so far that is the only place I can find her work but... it is oh so fabulous.

Most of her work is small scale embroidery that is in some way a portrait...

some seem of very specific people...

some of fantasy ladies and worlds...

and then there are the ones that seem more like statements on issues in our culture.

I love how there is just tiny little elements that reference the beat up, old, and overstuffed couch but yet it is so present in the image- from just tiny little marks.

Either way Jaclyn has a very talented hand and I find her work and technique inspiring.

I like how in this piece she uses the pattern of the background fabric to finish the image. so cool and genius.

It very much has the quality of a drawing and this is something I very much like.
