ART NOW S20 Professional Practices

Class of 2023
Art+Design Major

Up until the past few years embroidery as a medium was not taken seriously as an art medium-as it was traditionally thought of as just women’s work. However women have been reclaiming embroidery and sewing as a legitimate art form. I was inspired by these women to make my own embroidery creations. In addition, I chose to represent the feminine by my choice of women as the subject.
