I was excited to receive a copy of Little Thing Magazine, a style and fashion quarterly, which includes an article about my work. It’s printed in Chinese, with a smattering of English headings, but I think most people will just look at the pictures. The winter issue’s theme is Girls Love Illustration and features a dozen interviews with illustrators from around the world. The magazine is girly for sure, but not in a too cutesy. Its editors do a good job of gathering a sophisticated collection of “beautiful things” to pour over. I’m not sure who it’s aimed at, but there’s definitely a youthful, playful spirit that many people (besides teenage girls) can appreciate.
All that said, I find it peculiar that a publication out of Hong Kong would be so devoid of Asian influence. It oozes European style and the fashion pages show only models that look like they’re straight out of Scandinavian central casting. Besides being perplexed by this incongruity, Little Thing Magazine is chock full of inspiring images and I’m grateful that they reached out to me! Incidentally, a couple of years ago, the magazine featured my friend Mimi Kirchner’s tattooed dolls, which she writes about here.
Thank you Salley for always being reachable to your fans who follow and admire your work. Please stay that way now that you are an International Celebrity Artist 🙂
We are all so proud of your success.
It’s always nice to hear from you, Rebecca. If you notice less posts in the future, it isn’t due to an increase in publicity, but because I’m immersed in work, that is stitching.
Wonderful to have fans all over the world! Congrats. –Beth, Woods Hole Inn
Thanks Beth – Yes, it’s exciting! See you around the “hole”.
This is wonderful. All my favorite worlds are coming together. My daughters study Chinese and one of my all-time favorite artists is featured in a Chinese magazine!
I just saw your Posies show at the Upstate Museum in Greenville SC! I have followed and admired your work ever since I saw it in a Fiberarts Design book ages ago. Your work is amazing and I cannot believe how tiny and perfect your chain stitching is. I do think I will try one of your dolls. The little girl in me cannot resist!
