Karena Ryan Textiles
A textile artist in the West of Ireland making unique handmade embroidery art for all occasions including commemorative art. Since mid March I have been making stitched portraits of our healthcare professionals (nurses and doctors) onto repurposed uniforms and tunics called Heroes in Stitches with the view to exhibit all portraits post Covid. So far I have up to 50 participants. I am also hand stitching positive and uplifting messages and affirmations onto fabric and framed in an embroidery hoop. These little artworks have been sent worldwide with messages in Irish, English, Polish to Grandparents, sisters, parents from their loved ones to let them know that they are missed. These are from my Hero Hoop collection.
OneADay: I am offering 10% discount from my Hero Hoop collection, the proceeds are going to Heroes Aid, a non profit organisation that is securing PPE. For my Heroes in Stitches project, I am offering a free print for each nurse and doctor working on the front line.
