The Cutting & Stitching Edge – Nicole Licht


Contemporary embroidery art via Mr X Stitch

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.

Go and check out her Flickr stream and her etsy shop and give her the big love she deserves!
