Here are the correct sides of the set of cushions I completed this summer for four Knoll Tulip chairs. The reverse sides are below.

Without wishing to sound gushing, this stuff if flippin' awesome! I really like the embellished artwork. It's a path I find myself heading towards - but from a graffiti angle.

Great stuff!

Best wishes.

Hey Richard,
i stumbled across your work as i am currently undertaking a self-directed project at university focusing on the gender bias and artistic scope of embroidery. I hope you don't mind but i am going to cite your work as a source of inspiration in my contextual studies. It really is awe inspiring. Any chance you are doing any exhibitions in the UK?
Many thanks,
Laura x
