Sophie Standing - Textile Art

Enjoy the following stunning artwork by Sophie Standing. Sophie uses a technique unlike anything I had ever seen before. Her one off pieces are created by appliqueing an intricate collage of fabric onto the canvas where her image is already sketched out. She then draws the details over the top of the fabric with her sewing machine using many different coloured threads. I love the way you can see the patterns through the stitching!
Born in England but now based in Kenya ,Sophie’s textile embroidered art is inspired by the flora and fauna around her in Africa.

  14. Hi, I'm from Germany and he picture of the elephant caught my attention over at Pinterest since I draw pictures with the sewing machine as well - only a very different type. Your pictures, however, are a very different league compared to mine and absolutely stunningly beautiful! I really admire your talent. As I like the owl best I have pinned it so that many more people become aware of your pictures.

  15. I have managed many top art galleries in
    Coronado, CA, San Diego, CA and Denver, CO and I know top quality art when I see it. Ive seen many beautiful pieces of painted silks, and textiles... But these are EXTRODINARY!!! On the web they look like exceptional watercolors, but to find out they are made of different layers of lace and embroidery was mindblowing! Yours is real talent!
