Needlepoint Art.

Needlepoint art. That feels weird to say. You have to throw out all preconceived ideas of what that means or looks like. Like all crafts out there are bad examples of what needlepoint art is. Well, that’s not exactly fair. Let’s say it’s not my style and certainly doesn’t seem modern. I wanted something graphic ¬†for my gallery wall. I love that fiber or textile can add a completely different texture that more traditional art can’t offer you. So I created a needlepoint sample to fill a void and add dimension to the art surrounding it.

Also on my wall is a gemsbok paper mache head from West elm. The shark jaw and antlers are from a thrift store.

A beautiful photography print of my dear friend and sister-in-law, Ashley Rodriguez.

The feathers are a watercolor also from Ashley Rodriguez (sheesh, save some for the rest of us, girl!), the yellow hydrangea painting is from this etsy seller, and the photography print of the flowers is from 20×200.
