Ann Khokhlova’s Poetic Embroidered Illustrations

ann khokhlova

I’m blown away by all of the color and texture that’s in these illustrations by Ann Khokhlova. The luscious application of thread/yarn makes for dense compositions that are very expressive. They are a sea of stitches, and I like how Khokhlova uses the chain stitch to create waves of color that sends your eye on a journey as she depicts narrative folk-inspired tales.
