this is my embroidery for the Fiber Arctic show coming up at Schmancy!
The show will feature artwork from many different artists dealing with the state of the environment and it's impact on the arctic.
My idea was that the arctic could one day become myth if it keeps disappearing. I embroidered a polar bear in the snow with northern lights looking at a 'mirror' image of a unicorn in clouds with a rainbow. it's embroidered on satin (which is really hard to photograph well! :P), and stretched on a canvas frame, measuring 9x16 inches.
