The Cutting & Stitching Edge – Nicole Licht

Nicole Licht is a textile artist from Brooklyn, New York. She’s great.

She embroiders a range of subjects, but we love her mainly for her soft sculptures.

The ghosts are terrific – you wouldn’t mind them floating through your hallways! And as for the deer! Just brilliant.

Nicole’s work has been featured at Gallery Hanahou in New York, which looks like a great place if you like your contemporary embroidery. I’d be there all the time if I wasn’t on the other side of the planet.

 

What is she doing now? Nowadays, Nicole is co-founder of a collaborative creative studio alongside Melissa Deckert, ‘Party of One Studio’. The two of them take their fine art and traditional craft experience and use it to create prop design, styling and sets for photo-based, visual campaigns- and they’re incredible!
