Craft Supplies and Couture? The Art of Izziyana Suhaimi

Back when I owned a whirlpool mess of embroidery skeins, I was 99% sure that the paramount piece one could produce with the thread was a friendship bracelet. I’ve since discovered that I was acutely mistaken. Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi takes these kitschy craft supplies and gives them a fashionable makeover by stitching them into her already impressive illustrations. With their fashion inspiration, punch-in-the-gut colors, and stark good-lookingness, Suhaimi’s work has reworked my expectations of what simple craft supplies can do.

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.
