Imagine having your favorite place in the world captured with needle and thread. Little colorful stitches that eternalize the grass, sky and the buildings in a beautiful, one of a kind embroidery to remind you of that spot in a very unique piece of art. This is how Luxembourg based artist Libby Williams combines her passion for art and traveling; after exploring a new city or country, she embroiders the locations that she loved the most onto hoops that portray these places in a whimsical and unique style. And to give her work extra character, she often combines her embroidery with paint too.
The slow and steady process of embroidery allows me time to contemplate the details of these varied locations and their completed forms offer a heart felt tribute to the beauty and perfection of our shared planet.
Libby recently started a blog where she shares her travel experience and her inspiration to create artworks out of the places she has visited. And if you’re looking to have your favorite place in the world stitched onto fabric: she currently accepts commissions too!
