Stephanie K. Clark (and hi)

I have been gone from this space for far too long, friends. I’ve been busy? Summertime? I don’t know, the point is that I miss being here and I want to be here more. To start, I want to share the extraordinary work of Stephanie K. Clark. I came across this article about her embroidered homes and you know I can’t resist beautiful embroidery. Take a look:

I love the colors, delicate details, and  use of shadows in her series of dwellings. They work together to tell a story. In her own words:

I consider myself a painter and I paint with thread.  The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complex simplicity.

The idea of using embroidery permeates the feelings of my grandma’s home and the embroidery skills she has passed down to me.  With that, I use embroidery to create the domestic feel to tell the story of life in the home and family.
