Product description

Review

"Mixed-media artist Solomon uses embroidery to embellish her artwork with texture and depth. This collection of simple projects demonstrates how embroidered embellishment can add interest to everyday goods. After a clear, thorough introduction to the tools and supplies used in hand embroidery, the fun begins: Solomon presents a collection of home decor and accessory projects with a distinctively indie-craft aesthetic. A number of artists join her to present their takes on the projects, bringing their unique styles to the collection. Interest in embroidery continues to grow, and the variety of projects in Solomon’s collection, as well as its trendy aesthetic, make this an appealing purchase."

About the Author

Lisa Solomon is a studio artist that moonlights as a college professor and graphic designer. Profoundly interested in the idea of hybridization (sparked from her Happa heritage), Solomon's mixed-media works and installations revolve thematically around domesticity, craft, and triggers that may be construed as masculine and/or feminine. She is drawn to found objects tending to alter them conceptually so their meanings and original uses or intents are repurposed. She often fuses "wrong" things together--recontextualizing their original purposes, and incorporating materials that question the line between ART and CRAFT. She received her BA in art in 1995 from UC Berkeley and her MFA from Mills College in 2003. She has exhibited and works with galleries both nationally and internationally, is in numerous private and public collections, and is continually tweeking artworks in her backyard studio. She resides in Oakland, California with her husband, daughter, a three-legged cat, a cross-eyed cat, a deaf French bulldog, a pit-bull, and many, many spools of thread. She is the author of Knot Thread Stitch (Quarry Books, 2012). www.lisasolomon.com
