Who does embroidery by hand these days? Only elderly ladies, and perhaps a few hipsters. But for Connecticut-based artist Alaina Varrone, hand embroidery is her primary method of expression and creation.
Alaina was "born to a family of weirdos and storytellers" – and this creative upbringing is reflected in her exceptional needlework. Known for her erotic pieces, in her latest series the self-taught stitch queen focuses on the intimate moments of everyday people. See below for more of her amazing embroidery designs.
