When people visit me at home, they will without fail comment on one particular artwork that hangs on my wall. Not only is this artwork unique and charming, but it also happens to have been created by one of my favourite people and closest friends.
Kym Shaw has an incredible talent of creating artwork from fabric and thread. Over the weekend I was lucky enough to see her latest offerings at the Scarborough Art Show and purchased another of her gorgeous works to add to my collection.
As a mother of two little boys, Kym particularly loves transforming children’s hand drawn artwork into embroidered keepsakes. By her skillful hands I have seen the scariest of monsters, most beloved of pets, quaint little neighbourhoods and family portraits transformed – as they are patiently cut, sewn and threaded to life.
Please be sure to pop over to her Facebook page – you can even meet her family there, in all their embroidered beauty!
