The embroidered landscapes created by artist Ana Teresa Barboza takes the art form to another level. Instead of staying in the confines of the hoop or even a piece of paper, she extends her scene in an abstract way that nevertheless building beautifully on the scene within the standard framework. Utterly gorgeous, she encourages other artists to truly think outside of the box through her embroidered landscapes.

Flowing onto gallery walls, the embroidered landscape artworks make up her Suspension series. Whether showing the roots of a plant or expanding on a grassy mountain range, she breaths new life not only into her chosen subject matter, but the embroidery technique in general. She strikes a perfect balance between modernity and tradition.
