Jean-Pierre Séguin was the professor in the department of arts and letters at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi and works in a wide variety of medium including paint, sculpture and embroidery! This embroidered portrait of Rita Hayworth is just one example of a series of portraits created in this style.
Not only is the front an energetic build up of chaotic but precise stitches, the back is equally as glorious!
