Embroidery Paintings by Chloe Giorndano
"I'm always a bit torn between referring to my work as 'illustration' or 'embroidery' – having gone into it with the mindset of an illustrator and having no background in traditional crafts, and yet I spend too much time playing around with fabric and sewing needles to feel I can entirely say I’m an illustrator – but I like to think that’s what people find interesting about my art, that it is in a space between embroidery and painting. I'm mostly inspired by the natural world, either in the garden or museums and spend a lot of my free time drawing and collecting things from various places."
