Beautiful Find - Teresa Barboza's Embroidered Landscapes and Plants

Teresa Barboza's work is a twist to traditional embroidery with vivid landscapes tumbling beyond the boundaries of the embroidery hoop, much in a way that nature does.  True, natural and uncontrolled.

Her work is on the line between embroidery and sculpture.  The sense of layering and dimension adds beauty and depth to the pieces.

The range below reminds me of a perfect pen and ink sketch.  I can't imagine the planning it must have taken to achieve this.

I came across Teresa's work on This is Colossal and all images are from Teresa Barboza's Blog, where you can view more of her work. ;-)

I'd love to hear from you, please leave a comment.
