The Natural Whimsy of Rachel Wright


Gear Threads Is The Mr X Stitch Machine Embroidery Column - Presented By Urban Threads!

The main goal of artist Rachel Wright is, as she states it, “to delight the eye.” She uses rich color, paint, and intricate freestyle machine embroidery to bring scenes of nature and landscapes to life in colorful ways.  The shapes, colors and details of her favorite subject matter are borrowed and echoed in delicately hand- or machine-embroidered fabric collages, using vibrant threads worked onto papers and fabrics.

The signature skies in her landscapes are often dramatic and expressive, offering a somewhat surreal and bold contrast to the natural elements they surround. Her stitches are as expressive as they are colorful. If you want to see more of her rich work, including some fascinating insight into how a piece is created, check out her website.
