Mr X Stitch Presents: The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge – Maria Pineres
|Share the love...||
Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge! I’m Mr X Stitch and I’ll be your guide to the best in contemporary embroidery. Each week I’ll showcase someone who is rocking the world of embroidery and textiles.
Maria Pineres is an artist from Los Angeles.
Maria’s chosen art form is needlepoint and she uses it to great effect.
From the Rogues Gallery series, to her recent NASCAR piece, Maria’s work is a breath of fresh air, blowing the cobwebs away from an oft-overlooked form of embroidery.
I really like this work; needlepoint’s simplicity means it doesn’t really get much credit in comparison to other stitchery forms. Maria gives the genre a wake up call and I hope that she inspires other people to give it a go and see what they can do.
Visit her website to find out more; Maria might be the saviour of needlepoint… 🙂
