In to the Woods, embroidery on linen

Tilleke Schwarz is a Dutch artist working in embroidery and also drawings on paper. Look for her work in the upcoming traveling exhibitions Fiberart International (U.S.) and the Knitting and Stitching Show (U.K./Ireland) over the next two years. There is also a wonderful article about her in the current issue of Selvedge magazine.
