Warning: Sheena Liam’s (@times.new.romance) hand-embroidered creations may not be based on real people… but they may induce some serious hair envy. “I’m not a person who can sit idle,” says the artist and model, who is originally from Penang, Malaysia, and now lives in NYC. She learned the basics from her mother as a child, and picked back up her needle and thread to stay occupied during her commute and in her free time. “The internet introduced me to artists with new and contemporary ways of approaching the medium,” says Sheena. “It made me realize the potential of embroidery beyond the traditional.” Tune in to today’s story to see more of Sheena’s embroidery style. 🧵 Photo by @times.new.romance
But before we go on, yes, this is the same Sheena Liam who made Malaysia proud as the first-ever Malaysian to win hit reality show Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 back in 2014.
Now, she’s done it again and made Malaysians proud with her beautiful handmade artwork.
The post reveals, “She learned the basics from her mother as a child, and picked up her needle and thread to stay occupied during her commute and in her free time.”
That’s not all. She even had her first ever solo exhibition at the Item Gallery in Paris.
Using her signature dark green thread for her embroidery, she recreates self-portraits with a combination of secure and loose fibres. They’re so detailed, just look that hair!
