Collection: Tapestry Girl
Tapestry Girl is the creation of artist Niki McDonald who depicts urban life through her modern needlepoint tapestries.
Niki is interested in the contrast of urban life balanced with the pace of needlepoint tapestry. The colours and shapes of the city streets inspire and empower the urban women she expresses in wool, as she imbues them all with a sense of sass and individuality.
Niki is inspired by the ephemeral and drawn to the mechanical nature of her textile arts practice. Within the repetition and toiling is a space that allows her to connect with her intuition and inspires her beyond the daily grind. The repetition of the tapestry stitches echoes the pixels in her digital artwork.
