We are so pleased to begin 2017 by featuring the work of Michelle Kingdom. Michelle was born in Los Angeles and received her degree in art from UCLA. This California artist's work is figurative, mainly featuring women's figures in different settings and situations. I love the expressive nature of her figures and the suggestions of facial expressions. Her figures have movement, energy and attitude. The image below is called "What is done cannot be undone" and is 8" square.
As a self-taught embroidery artist, Michelle has been quietly creating figurative narratives in thread for two decades. She has recently begun to exhibit her work nationally, and her embroideries are now held in private collections internationally. When not busy stitching, Michelle teaches children and lives in Burbank, CA with her husband and daughter.
You will be able to read more about Michelle and her work in our newsletter. If you are not signed up, please do so and we will send you a free package of Sajou embroidery needles.
