The Art of Katie Henry

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Embroidery artist Katie Henry creates nostalgic scenes using thread, a pale color palette, and anthropomorphic figures that speak of summer and childhood. Each composition is created within a void of white space, causing the viewer to focus on the careful details of the stitching. Interestingly, the animal/human hybrids also cross breed with other species, as families are blended with birds and mammals. This subtle inclusion adds a sly social commentary to the gentle works.
