I just found the wonderful, colorful world of textile artist Laura Amiss, and I'm lobbying to move to said world right away...
She's an English lass (well, mum too, but that still counts as a lass, right? Please?) living in Amsterdam, all of which shows up in her sweet work.
Many of her works for sale are prints on canvas of her original illustrations with added textile details, as in the above pieces, and others are completely fashioned of fabric. (Yes, I love them all! Don't you?!)
The houses, predictably, are my faves, but there's much, much more to Laura's work than that. A wee sampling:
Laura uses a brilliant combination of free-hand embroidery and the layering and piecing of vintage and new fabrics in her textile work, creating totally unique images of her everyday world. And they sure do make me smile.
Enjoy it all, my friends: her world, and yours. Cheers!
