For several years Ashlee has been using cross stitch and canvaswork techniques to create some really arresting content! From serene pieces like “Hello Gorgeous”…

She successfully exploits the contrast between “nice” embroidery and political commentary and uses her work to deliver some terrific punches!

And she isn’t afraid to go for the big pieces either! “The FountainHead” must have taken an age, but it’s a magnificent piece!
