Hand embroidered portrait on linen fabric with a mix of wool, cotton, and silk thread embroidered on top. 

A woman shown biting into a bright red apple. The entire portrait is hand embroidered using differing stitching styles. The face utilizes a satin stitch technique separated out into different sections with multiple skin tones to provide distinction between features. The hair is created by a beautiful heathered effect between grey and black to separate out sections. Colors that can be found are a mix of neutral skin tones, shades of forest green, in addition to a stunning bright red. The background is made up of an abstract checkered pattern of light blue and white.
