Meghan Dauphinee is an embroidery artist. She lives in Lillooet BC with her partner and her dog. When she is not making art, she is wandering in the mountains looking for the perfect fetching stick.
Meghan’s series of stitched portraits started by accident one night with a projector, a digital camera, and some naked bodies…These contortions of image-light on skin sparked the novel process of stitching together wild vignettes and the human form. Mobile-phone images are beamed through the projector, spreading wilderness on the blank faces and torsos of human models. Working from the flat raster quilt of these digital portraits, Meghan builds earthy beings in the textural third dimension that only hand-embroidery can achieve.
