Melissa Zexter is photographer who has utilized embroidery to enhance photographs.
Melissa’s series of landscapes are my personal favourite, as I love the subtle texture that is added in a way that is sympathetic to the atmosphere of the original photograph.
To see more of Melissa’s work, visit her website and check out our Cutting (& Stitching) Edge post from a few years back!
Melissa is also one of the artists featured in the Embroidered Image exhibition at Robert Mann Gallery – find out more here!
