This portrait is created freehand on the sewing machine. Drawing each mark, value, and detail by manipulating the canvas under the moving needle. Each has a final result of a line drawing but with a more labor-intensive method that I chose as a dedication towards their preservation.
This is California Condor is based on my ink drawing which is based on a photograph from a bird app. on my iPad
This bird portrait has been created by freehand stitching on a sewing machine! Otherwise, I draw with my sewing machine. There is absolutely No programing involved. I draw each portrait first as an ink drawing and use that to trace guidelines of the image on the canvas using a fabric marker that fades or washes away. Even though I may use the same drawing per bird, each becomes a one of kind due to the process that I use. Stitched in black on heavy duty cotton duck canvas fabric and is stretched in a 6” wooden embroidery hoop, ready to hang! Canvas has permanently adhered with heavy-duty two-sided tape. A wooden disc is then glued to the back with a metal hanging ring. Signed and dated with the name of the bird on the back.
Great present for your any Twitcher or birder!
Makes a great house warming or present to yourself

These also look beautiful as a grouping!



This portrait is framed in a 6” wooden embroidery hoop.

Proudly Made in Baltimore, MD, in a pet and smoke-free studio, by one woman, one at a time!
