Photorealistic Portraits Hand-Embroidered by Cayce Zavaglia

St. Louis based artist Cayce Zavaglia creates amazing hand-embroidered photorealistic portraits. The process, which she refers to as a “renegade approach to embroidery”, begins with a photo-shoot consisting of 100-150 portraits from which she selects the best image and then moves to the canvas where she works with one ply embroidery thread on Belgian linen to create each piece. To get to know more about her process watch the video about her work after the jump.
