We opened up our email this week to the below message from embroidery artist Yoko White. All of these pieces are created using a technique called french knots.
Very time consuming and requiring a great amount of patience! All we can say, is WOW.
You have to see these in person to truly appreciate them! We are so very very lucky to have so many talented artists living amoung us, even that of Jack Frost in wintertime. Thanks to all that appreciate and support visual arts and cultural talents of all sorts!
In addition to these works, Yoko also made three Nova Scotia themed works that look as if they are Wax Seals. Which one is your favourite? We can't decide but they are all filled with Nova Scotia pride! We hope to make some postcards from them too! Art and the beautiful places to visit all around, we believe to be Nova Scotia's most valuable assets.
