Stephanie K. Clark’s Stitched Architecture

COMPILED BY Michaela Stehr IMAGES Stephanie K. Clark


Stephanie K. Clark creates beautiful works of art portraying whimsical architecture. She likens her work to paintings; her thread represents paint and the canvas her base for stitching.

“I consider myself a painter and I paint with thread,” explains Stephanie in her artist’s statement. “The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complex simplicity. My background in painting has allowed me to explore the material using techniques that derive more from the worlds of drawing and painting, engaging both traditional and innovative techniques in employing formal qualities with density, texture and pattern. The embroidery floss is my palette and the needle is my paintbrush.”
