Patterie by Rie Suzuki

I finally got to meet Rie Suzuki earlier this month at Spiral’s Independent Creators Festival. Her gorgeous embroidery work has impressed me from the first time I saw it.

Using sheer fabrics in multiple layers, satins, ribbons, beads and smoothly wrapping the hoops all leads to a lovely floating world for her feminine characters to swim, float and dance. Anything that brings stitch work into the 3D world such as Rie’s Stitch Drawings really inspire me.
