Embroidery is a three dimensional act! Using color thread to make a flat surface look three dimensional meant getting out my color wheel and color theory books! Painting with thread has been the most challenging technical work that I have been doing. Layering the right colors to render and gives my birds life.Thread bird portraits are created by a process of using a sewing machine to free flow draw on a fiber surface. They are stretched and attached to a wooden disc with double stick tape, then another wooden disc is wood glued onto the back to secure the canvas and give it a durable backing. A hanging ring, signature and date and name of bird are all on the back. Then the entire piece is framed in a wooden embroidery hoop that may be vintage or new. All work is created one at a time, by the artist in a smoke-free, animal-free historical Mill studio space
