I remember when I first saw the embroidery designs by Jenny Hart from Sublime Stitching. It was fresh and perverse — as she describes her work, "this ain't your grandma's embroidery". It inspired me, along with many others, to pick up a needle and learn the art of embroidery. This was at the cusp of the indie craft movement and Jenny, unknowingly, helped to pave the way for another artist. Now, years later, enter textile artist Meghan Willis.
Meghan is currently moving her studio from Ohio to Brooklyn, NY which has left her Etsy shop on temporary hiatus, but you can visit her website for more images of her stunning work. While you're there, make sure you look at the photo that inspired the first image… amazing!
