{Pay and Display} Artistiquement Design

I came across Debby Smyth displays on different occasions - without really knowing how they were made. She is an Irish textile artist based in the UK who made her name through thread drawings. And I am officially obssessed with her work!

Her work beautifully blurs the boundaries between fine art drawings and textile art, flat and 3D work, illustration and embroidery, literally lifting the drawn line off the page in a series of “pin and thread” drawings.

Debbie has worked with companies both nationally and internationally and I particularly love the cover she did for the New York Times for their Fall 2010 issue.

And for Manufactura for their July 2011 issue

And as we know I am quite a sucker for magazines covers I can display (so I may have to get my hands on one of them0 ... So what do you think guys, amazing or what?


  1. Beautiful- thanks for this great discovery!

  2. I've never seen anything by this artist, this must take a lot of patience! Beautiful.

    PS. Thank you for commenting on my blog, glad I could entertain you ;-)

  3. yes, I agree, I have seen this work before - now I can put a name to it!

  4. Pretty amazing! I've seen her work online before and it is so beautiful!

  5. Wow, I've never seen/heard of her before but these are so clever and creative. Definitely will check out more of her work online.
