Embroidery Portrait Artist Cayce Zavaglia

Cayce Zavalia is an Embroidery Portrait Artist from Australia. Her work focuses exclusively on the portraits of friends, family, and fellow artists.  Cayce's work is all hand sewn using cotton and silk thread or crewel embroidery wool. From a distance they read as hyper-realistic paintings, and only after closer inspection does the work’s true construction reveal itself.




Over the years, Cayce has developed a sewing technique that allows her to blend colors and establish tonalities that resemble the techniques used in classical oil painting.   The direction in which the threads are sewn mimic the way brush marks are layered within a painting which, in turn, allows for the allusion of depth, volume, and form. Her stitching methodology borders on the obsessive, but ultimately allows her to visually evoke painterly renditions of flesh, hair, and cloth.
