It's All About Texture

Sam Lord's Treasure Embroidery
Texture, it's what begs you to reach out and touch the surface.  One of the seven elements of design (line, shape, direction, size, color and value) when used with the other elements create interest, dimension, depth and enhances the visual story of the piece.  Fiber artists use threads of various thickness, a variety of stitches, found objects; while painters would use a build up of paint and/or make marks on the canvas.  Whatever the medium, texture is where it's at!
