Embroidery stitched directly through a vinyl record sleeve.

     X was Ed Sheeran’s second album and when I started to take notice of him. I instantly became a huge fan of his writing and musicianship. What surprised me was his age and how old he was when he wrote this album in 2014, he was 23. Then I think back to some of my favorite songwriters like Bruce Springsteen who wrote Born to Run at the age of 26. I think over time Ed Sheeran will wind up among the greats like Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. The album cover is very graphic. A lime green background with a large black X. I wanted to experiment with hand dyed yarn with this piece so I started by stitching a contour pattern in green dyed yarn over the green background. I then used an abstract stitch pattern in black yarn over the X to mimic the original style.

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".
