I have created a self-portrait using all the skills in embroidery. I used an online course Skillshare Danielle Cough: Painting with Thread, Modern Embroidery for Beginners.
This project is still currently in progress and I will be adding pictures as the project unfolds. It’s taken me 12 hours (22nd July).
I have called my painting, Reborn.
My understanding of identity, grief and facing the future. The colours represent my personality and all the emotions with the themes.

Thank you for viewing my portfolio for my embroidery project.
I've enjoyed creating a unique portrait of myself and learnt so many new skills. Including colour contrast, embroidery stitches and bringing my design to life.
