Look Closer: This Portrait Will Blow Your Mind


You are not going to believe this. See the portrait featured here? Well. It’s not a photograph. It’s not a drawing. It’s not a painting. No oil pastels or colored pencils or even crayons were involved. This portrait? It was embroidered. Embroidered! As in made with a needle and thread.

The artist is Cayce Zavaglia, and she started embroidering artwork when she was pregnant and looking for a non-toxic method of portraiture. Thinking about having a portrait of your child made? Why not add embroidery to your list of options — because Cayce does baby pictures too.
