Deceptive Markings by Sue de Vanny

Here’s a sample of what textile artist Sue de Vanny can do with a Reece Scannell photo textile panel . It’s amazing . Originally a scene of statues in a garden in a Viennese palace.  Now an embellished elephants head . This evocative piece radiates sadness of the elephants plight in its beautiful detailed thread work .
