Artist/model Sheena Liam understands that hair is a woman’s crowning glory, as shown in her collection of hand-stitched portraits of women sporting flowing, glorious locks.

Liam traces simple, minimalist line drawings with black thread, but rolls out the red carpet when it comes to their hair, where she lets multiple strands spill over the embroidery hoops they inhabit.

Whether stitched on small canvases (her works usually measure 5×5 inches) or bigger ones (a 5×5-foot artwork of hers is currently on display in Singapore’s Chi Chi Von Tang store), the effect is always dramatic. Needless to say, we’re keeping a close eye on her Instagram account to see what other embroidery goodness she comes up with — you should, too.
