Jill Draper

Can you spot the difference between these two images? While the pic on the left is a photograph of snow-covered trees, the one beside it is a tapestry of the trees.

Sixty-two year old British artist Jill Draper renders pictures of landscapes in her embroidered tapestries that are painstakingly recreated with astonishing accuracy using just a needle and thread.
