Pushing the Limits

Singapore-based artist Izziyana Suhaimi takes the craft of embroidery to a whole new level. Her work is a breath of fresh air. As if her drawings weren't beautiful already, she takes it up a few notches and embellishes them with bursts of colorful thread and ornate patterns which adds an eye-popping textural element. The contrast between the subtle gray of the pencil and the vibrant and intricate patterns is visually stunning. 

These are a few among my favorite pieces of Izziyana's. I particularly have a crush on those braided locks in the first two images. Swoon!

I can't wait to see what she dreams up next.
