Artist Ell Violet brings the joy of bird watching into the hoop along with her intricate bird sewing. Some of her newest works feature stately pictures of winged monsters from the neck up. Launched in four-inch hoops, they comprise a ribbon painting strategy which captures the multifaceted colors and iridescent sheen of the plumage.
“Every single stitch is intentional,” Ell says,”every detail is carefully planned. “
My purpose is to make pieces that are both mysterious and lovely, giving life to a world that had only existed in creativity. I love to push the boundaries of how we generally perceive embroidery, while still holding to the complex information and high degree of artistry that makes it so unique.
Ell sells her first, one-of-a-kind pieces at her online shop.
