i’m jealous of laura mckellar

It’s a beautiful morning, the sun is shining, and I am totally smitten. Her name is Laura McKellar, she lives in Australia, and she may very well be my new favourite artist. These two pieces {embroidery and digital print on fabric… I know, fantastic!} are based on The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Anderson, and were shown last November at the Once Upon exhibition in Melbourne. Sigh… nothing like a good girl crush to get you through a Tuesday.

    I truly love this, the use of those two medias together, the design, the colours, the subjects who are wearing those outstanding masks… I am truly jealous of Laura too!

    I’m loving these… And I must add that I’ve spent half a day perusing you blog. So thanks for providing a great way to avoid work 🙂

    IN LOVE! BURNING WITH JEALOUSY. Cannot believe I’ve never seen this before. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Will add her work to my embroidery Pinterest board so I can drool more.

    i know! she is easily one of my favourite artists ever… her work gives me that slightly nauseous, ‘why didn’t i think of this’ feeling every time i look at it.
