Welcome to Gear Threads, where we showcase artists who are elevating machine embroidery to new heights!
Got some serious eye candy for you today. Birgitte Busk is a textile artist in Denmark who creates freehand thread painting portraits, using an ordinary sewing machine and mad skills.
Many of her pieces are on the super-photorealistic side…
…but they’re just as gorgeous when she lets the stitchiness show.
She creates portraits on commission…
…and dabbles in other things, too.
See more of Birgitte’s amazing work here.
