Waterrose Handcrafted Obsessions

I'm a textile artist who has a love of  hand embroidery. Not only do I love collecting vintage pieces of embroidery...I love creating new embroidery pieces that I hope will be passed down to other generations. I also enjoy doing research on embroidery and collecting the history of this beautiful handwork.

I initially began creating hand embroidered cuffs, but I have been exploring other artistic mediums utilizing embroidery. Recently I have delved into a 3-dimensional aspect and have been creating pieces based on inventions of the 1800s.

As I explore more of the history of embroidery I gather more ideas on things that I want to create...I have an entire notebook filled with these ideas!

Artist statement:  Enlightening a generation to embroidery by showing that it is a beautiful, valuable and personal art form.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
