If you fancy practising your needle work skills take inspiration from Singapore born Izziyana Suhaimi.
Izziyana hand draw’s her portraits, uses watercolours to add colour and then picks up her thread and needle. She then embroiders details like a beanie or a tapestry-covered cardigan. Izziyana is interested in modern culture and loves the countless hours it takes to make her works.
If you don’t like the idea of using a needle or thread, you could use coloured paper to add patterned detail or even paint like acrylic or emulsion.
You can see more of Izziyana’s work on her tumblr http://my-bones.tumblr.com
