Sea Inspired

Escape to the seas with these enchanting embroideries by Oh My Cavalier! I love to see an artist merge traditional textile techniques with a modern sense of style. The results are beautiful and tend to have such a rich quality. These embroideries also tell a story and evoke a sense of adventure with pirates and mysterious sea lore. Ever since I saw these pieces I can't get them out of my imagination...which is a good thing!

After checking out Oh My Cavalier! be sure to also visit Julianna's inspiring Etsy shop and blog.

WOW! These are incredible. I don't believe I have ever seen such marine life captured through embroidery. You are totally right about the story and movement each piece captures.

josephine said...

the embroidery really captures the movement of sea creatures so beautifully (not that i'm an expert on sea life).
