Friday Featured Artist: Cayce Zavaglia

Craft is art. Cayce Zavaglia proves that with her amazing embroidered portraits.  She considers herself a painter; her stitches like strokes from a paintbrush, mixing colors of embroidery thread through tight and complex stitches that when looked at together, create a different hue.  See more of these amazing portraits here.
