New Embroidered Animals By Chloe Giordano

ADVERTISEMENT

Chloe Giordano, the embroidered and illustrator from Oxford, England whom we wrote about earlier, is back with more beautiful, colorful, needle-painted animal embroidery. Many of her unique artworks have a sense of eternal stillness about them, which, as one of her followers correctly noted, is because she often uses dead animals as models for her embroidery patterns.

“My secret is out – a lot of my reference for my works of art comes from dead animals,” she writes on her Tumblr. “I find the sadness combined with how peaceful these beautiful animals often look endlessly interesting.”

Giordano’s technique is called, appropriately, needle painting. She uses a wide array of colored threads in her beautiful art, sometimes using several needles with different threads at a single time, to blend colors and “paint” with strings.

These are absolutely lovely! They remind slightly of Beatrix Potter illustrations but more lush. Is there any way to purchase these? I would love to have them about my house.
