These pieces were inspired when I friend gave me some silk fabric from her wedding dress. I used human hair, purchased from a beauty supply store, to embroider the images on the fabric. Hair is generally considered seductive, especially long flowing hair. But the embroidery causes the soft strands to appear more prickly and rough. This is emphasized even further when paired with the luster of the silk. And the intimate nature of the hair lends a very private, personal feel to the images.
