Gasp! This is the work of Malaysian artist Sheena Liam. I’ve been recording episodes for my podcast over the past couple of weeks, and one of my fabulous co-hosting experts told me about Sheena’s work. I couldn’t wait for that episode to air … and can you blame me!? Elegant drawings turned into forest green stitches, tiny details like those stripes and fabric creases and, oh my word, that free-flowing hair! Here’s a little bit from Sheena’s ABOUT page:
Sheena Liam is a Malaysian born artist and model. As a child, Liam learnt the basics of embroidery from her mother and found herself revisiting the medium time and time again as means of self expression between traveling and modeling.
“In a strange way modeling parallels my art in the sense I often have to use body language as means of expressing a certain sort of mood. It’s no different from my embroideries.”
