Rana Balca Ülker

Couldn’t find too much information on embroidery artist, Rana Balca Ülker, but we admired her work so much that we had to share. The Istanbul-based talent has a degree in fashion and textile art.  She combines her acrylic paintings with embroidery and conveys a portrait imbued with deep expression and feelings.  Flowers and foliage are repeated images in many of her paintings.  She also created a series that focuses very powerfully on the eyes.  

The artist can be followed on Facebook and on Instagram.

Ophélie Trichereau

Admiring these hand embroidered solar system created by French illustrator and textile designer, Ophélie Trichereau. She studied at Pivaut School in Nantes and is currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland.  This self-taught embroider uses embroidery thread and enhances her pieces with stones, seed and crystal beads.

Kanae Entani

Loving these delicate embroidered pieces created by 
Kanae Entani, an embroidery artist trained in the U.K. but based in Japan.  After assisting London-based designers, she started a career as a freelance embroidery artist. Her inspiration comes from not only flowers and animals but also horror films, mystery novels, and alternative rock music.  She would like to eventually use her traditional embroidery skills to create something modern and contemporary.

You can see more of her work on her website, Facebook and Instagram.
