This week, we handpicked our Featured Artist among the tons of amazing artists whose work we follow. Her shop is called Femmebroidery. Check it out!
Featured Artist: Maria Arseniuk
Maria Arseniuk is the creator of Femmebroidery, a fabulous hand stichted fibre arts Etsy shop. She is from Calgary, AB, Canada, and she considers herself as a “feminist, crafitivist, activist, globe trotter and social justice enthusiast.”
As stated on her Etsy shop, Femmebroidery is where feminism and fibre art meet as one. “Femmebroidery began as a one-woman show in late 2014 when I began embroidering to both distract and procrastinate from the demands of grad school.”, Maria explains. “After graduation, I took this gig on the road full-time, and after meeting my partner, a designer, I began to incorporate mixed media into my hoop art.”
Her embroidery work is simply beautiful. Combined with the printed designs, her artwork stands out even more.
A lot of her designs incorporate messages that promote feminism and empowering women. However, others are just plain funny!
