Embroidered faces

Have y'all seen this awesome portrait of Tim Gunn by Lucky Jackson?

Ode to Tim Gunn is a mix of paint and applique on vintage fabric. I love the mix of paint and embroidery.

The Lovelies is another cute piece by Lucky Jackson so be sure to check her out on Etsy.

These reminded me of the work of Caroline Kirton who exhibited at the arts centre where I work a few years ago.
She combines applique and free embroidery to create pieces based on teenage life.

'My Mum's a proper weirdo!'

'Do heels go with this?'

And here's my attempt at portrait embroidery if you haven't already seen it.
