JDevinEmbroidery was started in 2018 after I fell in love with this amazing art form. I stumbled upon embroidery Christmas that year. My mother had hand embroidered stockings for the entire family, but she never had one of her own. I decided to take it upon myself to make her one. I learned two things creating that Christmas stocking. One, I couldn’t/wouldn’t follow a pattern. There were just too many things that could be changed and tweaked. And two, I was completely in love and had found my calling. Since that time, I’ve been creating nonstop. I now specialize in a technique called silk shading embroidery, also known as thread painting or needle painting. Although I still practice many techniques of surface embroidery, silk shading is my passion. I love embroidering birds and flowers, especially hummingbirds. But will embroidery just about anything on just about anything. I love working commissions because I never know what I’ll be asked to create.
I am a mother of a young boy and live in the city of Chicago, IL. With the help of my husband, I now run my small online store. I’m a member of E.G.A. (embroiderers guild of America), Windy City chapter. As well as member of S.E.W. (The Society of Embroidered Work). My work and patterns have been featured in Stitch Magazine, Sewliloquies and New Media International. As well as features and interviews through various online blogs.
I’m dedicated on bringing my love of this beautiful art form to as many people as possible. And am working towards the goal of having embroidery seen as fine art. I adamantly believe that embroidery is art. And, be recognized alongside with other works of art in galleries and exhibitions; Wether it’s oil paintings, water color, sculptures or any other fine art. My dream is to help elevate embroidery to be seen as the art it is and to change people’s views so they recognize it as such.
My original artwork can be purchased through my Etsy store. P.D.F. patterns will be available soon.
