Thank you so very much again, for being a pleasure to work with, for including me in the process at critical junctures, and for completing the magical piece.

Commission a portrait

Emily’s exquisite portraits are constructed from pieces of coloured silk organza sewn together with tiny meticulous stitches placed one at a time to capture the person’s likeness. This is really sensitive work.

Drawing on the tradition of portrait painting, imagining the person is sitting in front of her whilst she stitches, Emily likes to work from a photograph in which the person has a still expression, this adds to the quiet gentleness of the work for which Emily is known.

Our children’s embroidered portraits are always noticed and commented upon in our home, as they are so unusual and capture the essence of the kids perfectly.
