Embroidery artist, Carley, is sitting against a wooden headboard, stitching a floral pattern onto a piece of fabric. Carley wears a light blue button-up shirt and holds a needle and thread in one hand while guiding the fabric with the other.

Meet the Artist

Carley is an Edmonton native who has been obsessing over birds and art for the better part of her life. Originally a painter, she began embroidering in late 2019 and used it to overcome anxiety and rediscover her creativity. You can find her on most days hanging out with her son and her cats, re-watching friends for the 284th time, or over-watering her plants. Her favourite thing about embroidery is the ability to create unique visuals using textures, colours, and different stitching techniques. She firmly believes that birds are the perfect subject of embroidery and dares you to prove her wrong. She’s also very good at warding off Canada geese.
