Artist Statement:

For this piece of artwork I was Required to use only fabric and unrealistic colors to patch something to life. This was very unusual for me because I’m very used to using natural colors and staying inside my comfort zone, however I’m very happy with the results! The contrasting colors cause the portrait to really pop and the tiny threading adds the details.This art reminded me of summer and It was very fun to see the portrait slowly being pieced together and to experiment with something I’ve never done before.
