I love the bright colors that pop out of these beautiful embroideries by Sam Eldridge. Stitched sceneries with tropical botanicals that look like they will be blooming out of their fabric hoops soon. Love!
Sam Eldridge is an artist and self called chill grandma type who gets her embroidery inspirations from nature, feminism, and vintage botanicals. She has a very inspiring Instagram where you can find many more of her wonderful work, including some colorful paintings.
Inspired by travels and her Chilean background, artist Katy Biele creates embroideries with bright colors and beautiful designs. I love how her work is rich of playful textures and details. The little knots and beads she includes in many of her pieces give them are a perfect finishing touch that adds a little magic to the fabric.
I remember falling in love with Julie van Wezemael’s work in 2014, when I had had only recently started this blog. I still gaze et every new piece I see passing on my Facebook feed. Julie’s illustrations are so full of life and adventure! Although you may not see it at fist sight, Julie includes embroidery in her work too. In the first image, notice the little stitches around the gentleman’s head and in the top right corner? Perfection!
We have a winner..
