  1. Thanks for sharing this-it is pretty amazing! I would be curious to know why she switched from painting to embroidery. It is beautiful.

    1. Thanks Gail. Kind mind boggling to me. I see Kit has answered you question. Interesting.

  2. There's a really great article about her in Elle Decor this month too (which also gives a shout out to some other fiber artists)

    To answer Gail's question - she said that when she was pregnant, she needed an alternative to paint and turpentine and since her mother and aunt were thread workers, she chose that and was hooked!
