Meet My Idol --> Salley Mavor

No, I don't know her personally.
But yes, I super admire her amazing skills at making fabric relief (blush blush) - if you never heard of her or had not seen her marvelous work, then you must 'meet' her here (click the link below):




Her works are very inspiring - well, she did inspired me to do a simple fabric relief series called the 'Red Riding Hood Series' an adaptation to Lila Prapp's illustration in '1001 Stories'.  Here they are:


They're not as intricate as Salley's work (yet!) but they're my first darlings (and will be on their way soon to grace the studio of a very talented lady, the owner of Sew Stories. ^O^)
