Lisa Paige is a New Hampshire based artist, previous painter come embroideress. She characterizes her technique as drawing with thread, blending traditional techniques of embroidery with a free-hand draftsmen style. Having turned to drawing with thread only over the past few years the works have already been exhibited in several shows throughout New England. You can follow her work on Instagram @hay_needles or via her website at www.lisapaigeart.net
More artists are turning to traditional craft materials in an attempt to reconnect with the handmade, “evidence of hand” perfectly imperfect work. The product invokes nostalgia and the safety of an ancestor’s home, generations past. Bringing a past “homemaker” media to the modern day with preemptive nostalgia.
