Artist embroiders amazingly realistic thread paintings

Like AWorkstation on Facebook

Cayce Zavaglia is an artist who has taken the old craft of embroidery to the level of high art. Zavaglia creates detailed, almost photorealistic portraits and calls them “thread paintings.” The thread paintings are small, typically eight-and-a-half by eleven inches. When viewed close up, they maintain their visual integrity.

According to her artist statement, Zavaglia was trained as a painter, but “switched to embroidery 12 years ago in an attempt to establish a non-toxic studio.” Her work focuses exclusively on portraits of friends, family, and fellow artists.
