Stitchgasm – Portrait of My Mother as a Young Woman by Ellen Schinderman


I am crazy in love with this stunning cross stitch portrait by LA-based artist Ellen Schinderman.

Portrait of My Mother as a Young Woman

Portrait of My Mother as a Young Woman is 2 x 3 feet. The artwork has, in my opinion, a deep, longing quality. But the source of the longing is mysterious.

Check out Schinderman’s work on her website (WARNING: NSFW.) I particularly adore her series of red work female nudes on vintage doilies (99 Doilies), which I wrote about on my own blog here.

Her work is amazing.
