I am so impressed by Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi‘s work. She merges embroidery techniques into her own pencil drawings and watercolors, blurring an absolutely beautiful line between skilled handicraft and fine art.
“I don’t think modern art should be a certain way. The beauty of art is in its variety and diversity,” says the artist in a recent interview. “In everything and not just art, boundaries are getting blurred and limitations are being pushed.”
Izziyana first began developing this technique while doing a school project on medical illustrations and soon began incorporating the craft into the majority of her work.
