Embroidery stitched directly through a vinyl record sleeve.

12x12x2 inches, framed in acrylic.

    Creating the Cry of Love album was another natural choice. The stylized portrait of Jimi Hendrix just screamed embroidery to me. I have been creating embroideries in a sketch like style for many years and had just started creating them on album covers. Embroidery sketching is when I trace each thread over an existing image except I don’t stop to trim the thread, the design is created in one continuous line. Just like you would trace something with a pencil and never lift the pencil off of the paper. I created this piece with 24 layers of thread. The first two layers in thin rayon thread and the top two layers in thicker wool thread.

The albums take up to 8 hours to embroider and can contain over 200,000 stitches. The series is created and designed to be hung together so you can add to your installation wall as you discover new pieces I create. Each of the albums comes with a signed certificate and is framed in acrylic and measures 12" x 12" x 2".
