Singapore-based artist Izziyana Suhaimi is known for her fashion illustrations with embroidered accents but we find ourselves equally drawn to her stitch studies shown above. Her artist statement clearly explains her use of embroidery:
“Embroidery for me is a quiet and still act, where each stitch represents a moment passed. The building of stitches then becomes a representation of time passing and the final work is like a physical manifestation of time – a time object. Each stitch is also a recording of the maker’s thoughts and emotions.”
“I enjoy the duality of embroidery, in its movements of stabbing, cutting, covering, building, repairing, taking apart. Every stitch made seems to unfold a story and withhold it at the same time.”

The tagline Aisling Smyth has coined for her work is: ‘Inspired by the historical and motivated by the modern’.

She has won a national craft award from the Dublin Royal Society for her work, The Embellished CV, pictured above. You can follow her work on Facebook, Tumbler and Twitter.
