Olisa's curves

Found on Flickr

Olisa is an embroiderer that likes to experiment, pushing the boundaries of her stitching skills with every new piece she makes. Her latest piece is called My Tiny Great Curve and is a beautifully embroidered image of her own bare back and curves. Her choice of stitches for the hair and the fabric are especially effective.

The colours and shapes in the background are subtle but give the piece an even more intimate feel.  I also love the variety of stitches used and how they are layered upon each other. Wonderful work Olisa!  Read more about Olisa's Tiny Great Curve on her blog.
