Woman paints with thread, creates art through embroidery
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) – Marie Palmer’s office is covered in a whirlwind of color – a turquoise sewing machine, boxes overflowing with thread and acrylic landscape paintings in various stages of completion.
She sits in her pink chair, an “inspiration wall” with photos of famous masters and their works behind her. She pulls a needle and embroidery thread through a linen shirt, a large flower taking shape on what was a stain.
