Meredith Woolnough

Meredith Woolnough is an australian textile artist. She creates forms of nature like leaves and coral using a special embroidery technique that involves a sewing machine and a base cloth that dissolves in water after the piece is complete, leaving just the skeleton. In a way, her process mimics the natural process of leaves dying and drying up.

Cacye Zavaglia

Cacye Zavaglia embroidered portraits seem to be real paintings. She uses wool instead of oils and utilizing her background as a painter embroiders detailed portraits that look almost like photographs. The process begins with a photo-shoot and then moves to the canvas where she works with one ply embroidery thread on Belgian linen to create each piece which is often not larger than 8″ x 10″. Talking about her work, the St Louis based artist says that initially, working with an established range of wool colors was frustrating. Unlike painting, it was difficult to mix the colors by hand. Progressively, she created a system of sewing the threads in a sequence that would ultimately give the allusion of a certain color or tone. The direction in which the threads were sewn had to mimic the way lines are layered in a drawing to give the illusion of depth, volume, and form.
