This cat will take you to her website... in Japanese but Google will translate!
Kimika Hara is the most wonderful and inspired embroiderer, her pieces are full of wit and amazing texture. She uses so many techniques in one piece, the cat above is painted, appliqued, patched, corded, embroidered with a loose satin stitch and... she's used sequins, beads and buttons to embellish and it just works.
