We’ve featured several pieces on artistic embroidery, but none like this. This Japanese artist wields her needle like a paintbrush, creating miniature pieces of art and motion graphics with thread and needle.

Her work is more than just a pretty picture made in an embroidery hoop. It’s the combining of her craft with conceptual photography and video that gives her work a narrative and editorial style unlike anyone else’s.

​About the artist in her own words:
Japanese Embroidery Artist
刺繍画家 イプノット

The name ipnot comes from the nickname I have had since childhood.
I have spent my childhood surrounded by very creative and crafty people
who have inspired me.
I was drawn to embroidery because my grandmother used to do embroidery
and made it look very relaxing and enjoyable.
So I tried it and I enjoyed it myself. Since then,
I started my own projects and it does not feel like work at all. Rather,
it feels like like hobby since I am having fun.

I discovered myself that the French knot stitch can be done by wrapping thread
around the needle.
I find this type of stitching to be a lot of fun to do and it is my favorite type of stitch.
I have chosen the French knot stitch to represent my stitching style.
I choose a thread of my own preference from 500 different-colored
embroidery threads.
As in the art of stipple painting,
I use my needle like a paint brush and I stitch one knot at a time.
