This Artist Creates Beautiful Embroideries Inspired By British Landscapes (30 Pics)

Published 1 month ago

Victoria Rose Richards is a self-taught embroidery artist who creates stunning embroideries inspired by the aerial views of British landscapes. She has already created over 200 of them and it doesn’t look like she’s stopping anytime soon!

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Victoria said that around June of last year, she was doing a Color Series where she were creating landscapes in each color of the color wheel and found herself getting stuck on the green one. “As I was thinking of ideas, I was looking at the fields opposite my bedroom window and wondered how a top-down view of fields and trees would work out for it!” explained the artist. “I did the first piece and fell right in love—I already had an interest in aerial views and I felt like I’d found my thing in this!”

Some of the less detailed embroideries that Victoria makes can take between 6 and 25 hours to make but the bigger and more intricate ones can take up to 50.

“I like to make my pieces as bright as possible, so I like to use strong, rich colors even if in a real life landscape, they’d be dull,” explained the artist. “I like to think of my art style as an optimistic one!”

Victoria says that the biggest challenge when creating the embroideries is getting the perspectives right. “For example, a tree can be a big, fluffy French knot, but the sheep next to it a tiny white speck—some details I add in are hardly visible in the photos!” explained the artist.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
