Artist Crush: Kate Keara Pelen

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 · 6 Comments

Kate Keara Pelen created these embroideries for Liberty London via Dear Ada. Read her interview about the series here.

“I’ve always wanted my work to be something that was ‘lived with’ – like Matisse, who wanted his work to be experienced in the same way as ‘a comfortable chair’. I want my work to lure you in with simple beauty, and then take you by surprise!”  - Pelen via the Liberty London blog
