Applique Pooch Portraits by Olga Ezova-Denisova


Olga Ezova-Denisova

With a vari­ety of fab­rics, Olga Ezo­va-Deniso­va cre­ates por­traits of ani­mals using an applique tech­nique. They’re fun: dogs are dressed for both cold weath­er and a day at the beach, and we see them don­ning scarves, caps, rosy cheeks, and more.

I love the mix­ing of mate­ri­als and how they’re han­dled in a painter­ly way. Small shapes of fab­ric cre­ate high­lights and show the direc­tion of fur. They also define its con­tours and form. Addi­tion­al embroi­dery stitch­es refine details that give these pieces even more depth.
