Narrative Embroideries

3rd June 2022

Creating mysterious embroidered worlds peopled with ritualistic characters is the particular style of embroidery artist, Michelle Kingdom. She describes her amazing art works as ‘psychological landscapes’ and with only a few beautifully placed stitches, she creates ambiguous settings that are filled with meaning.

Michelle is as much an artist as she is a needleworker, using her needle and thread to sketch and paint her individual pieces. She is fascinated by the human form and often places her subjects in poses that invite more questions than answers. It is easy to get lost in her works, wondering just what each figure is doing and what is going through their mind.

Michelle is currently working towards a solo exhibition, but you can read more about her HERE, and follow her on her website and on Instagram to stay informed with what she’s doing and admire more of her stunning work.
