'Suzy' is the first of a series of stitched portraits representing different individuals living in the City of Coventry.

Suzy is the first in a series of portraits created to reflect the lives of people living in the City of Coventry.

On a personal level, these portraits provide me with the opportunity to explore the human face, working with colour and stitch to reflect expression and realness.

The more outward goal for these portraits is to inspire and connect the people of Coventry, in particular children. Sharing the stories of the different lives stitched, communicating the similarities between individuals who may have never met before.
