Vanessa says... "These pieces combine three of my favorite things: photographs, embroidery, and sweet treats.
All the photos in this show are found photos. I have always been fascinated by old photographs but especially with ones that end up abandoned or surrendered. It's impossible for me to look at them and not wonder about the people in them and the stories behind them, who they are, where they are, what is going on around them, who took the photo, where all the involved parties are today. Even though I don't know any of the people in the images, stitching the designs right onto the photos is a way for me to celebrate the subjects in them and let these moments in time live on."
