Katie Menzies admits that there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing her drawings come to life, using needle and thread. A full-time illustrator, and part of the creative duo Cabeza Patata, she's also a passionate embroiderer.

Sorrell Chrystal Kerrison makes hand embroidered portraits that are made to look like Fauvist paintings. Her work is colorful, vibrant, and expressive, or in other words a visually controlled chaos that brings her subjects to life. Growing up in a valley just off the North Wales coast, Kerrison's love of art and music...
Ulla-Stina Wikander's art is unlike we've ever seen - a unique homage to the discarded objects of the past. Under her hands, an old toaster or rotary phone turn into works of art.
