Jennifer Plott

Admiring the stunning embroidery work of textile artist Jennifer Plott.  The Santa Maria, California-based artist is  completely self-taught with no artistic training or education at all.  Her work uses simple symmetrical shapes and patterns adding nature in her recent designs.  On an article in Ballpitmag she says this about her inspiration:  

“I am most often inspired by nature. I am fascinated by trees (especially bare branches). In the past year or so, I’ve been getting more and more interested in stitching floral designs. At the same time, I am equally fascinated by creating geometric patterns and abstract designs. I am inspired by beautiful textiles and fabrics. I find ideas for color schemes in so many places. Literally everywhere I go! I’m always trying to pay attention so I don’t miss out on something inspiring.”

The artist can be followed on Instagram and a few of her items can be purchased in her Etsy shop, SeasideFoxArtwork.
