I’m absolutely blown away by the fantastic work of Buckinghamshire based illustrator, Chloe Giordano. She learnt to embroider by trial and error and is incredibly skilled at it! What really gets me are the subtle colour variations and gradations she manages to infuse so seamlessly into her work. You may be tempted to think these are machine embroidered, they’re that neat and precise, but they’re done completely by hand and are layered to create a more raised effect in a way that a machine wouldn’t quite replicate. Amazing, right?
She even creates direwolf plush toys, amongst others…
And how adorable is her little assistant? Too cute!
