Morocco – Artist Research 1Posted: February 3, 2016
Since coming up with my new project concept I have spent a bit of time doing some artist research online. I first came across Sarah Benning whilst searching on Instagram for embroidery ideas and was instantly drawn to the simplicity of each section, but how effective they look altogether. I really like the idea of using both hand embroidery and machine stitch together, as you can see from my sample below. Combining a hand made feel inspired by the artisans from the Moroccan Souks along side more precise areas of machine stitch. Over the next few days my plan is to use the machines to stitch out a few more backgrounds from my drawings, ready to then hand embroider into different sections.
