Order a specially commissioned one off embroidered artwork of your loved one by Marna Lunt...
Portraits and the human form has always been a big favourite to draw and stitch, I love playing with the colours of the flesh and creating texture and emotion in the marks and expressions.
I use a mix of threads from linen, silk, wool and cotton to create my 'brushstrokes'. Stitching up my work as I would a painting, layering colour over colour in short stitches as well as other embroidery stitches to give character and warmth to the face. Each piece is stitched to a linen ground colour in black, grey, cream or mustard.
This is for one face only. Please supply one clear digital photo (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
This piece is supplied stretched on a box frame. It can be hung as it is or framed by you by a professional framer. Finished artwork size: 14.5cm x 14.5cm.
Commissions are made to order and will be created in 20 working days. All postage will be by special delivery. Please allow up to 14 days after completion for international shipping.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
