I heart Audrey Wagner
Audrey Wagner is a beautiful person to be around. She makes the world all sorts of sparkly, both with her personality and her art; if she were in a movie, tinkly music would play whenever her character appeared on-screen.
Audrey is also one of the most prolific embroiderers I know. I am beginning to suspect she might have some sort of Steven King-alien-UFO-chamber she enters, makes herself a cup of tea, and thinks beautiful embroideries into being. Needles fly through the room; floss, thread and Rhinestone Guy rhinestones dance around like a jacked up dervish on too much espresso. The air is charged with nascent art at the crest of emergence, and with a wave of her powerful hand, an Audrey Wagner original is born.
She makes the rest of us look pretty slack. To see what I mean, check her out at reverie on an aud world.
Here are a few images of what she has done in the past few weeks.
