stitched together using a range of colorful threads, shimunia crafts her landscapes onto palm-sized embroidery hoops. she uses various stitch and knot styles as well as differently textured threads including thin, thick, and even three-dimensional fibers.

as well as small scale landscape scenes shimunia also creates tiny finger tip-sized pieces. her latest works merges the embroidered landscapes with real images to create surreal scenes. you can find more of shimunia’s work on instagram, and purchase her embroidery designs on etsy.
