Artistic Inspiration ~ Textile Artist Yumi Okita

While researching for my last post about Mr Finch, I discovered yet another textile artist new to me
 and well worth sharing.  Yumi Okita is an artist based in North Carolina who creates these
 beautifully detailed embroidered moths.  Sometimes even some butterflies and an occasional cicada or
 beetle can be found on the artists site HERE.  I just adore the colors and large scale of these beauties
 and would love to have one perched in my home. What a vision! 

Makes you just want to create something lovely doesn't it? All of the beauty in this world... :) 



  1. What interesting creatures! You know, I have a kind of phobia about moths, I am afraid of them like crazy :D But these are lovely, and the satin-stitch embroidery here, the use of fur and colourful fabrics! Cute find, Andrea! :)

  2. A debt of gratitude is in order for each other instructive site. The spot else might just I understand that sort of data written in such a perfect means? I have an endeavor that I'm a few seconds ago working on, and I have been watchful for such data. crockmeter
