Imogen is an artist who creates incredible portraits using nail and thread.

She is influenced by the traditional craft of hand-embroidery but their style of work puts a contemporary spin on threadwork!

Her method of making consists of wrapping thread around nails which pinpoint the contours of the face to build up a mesh-like form made up of triangles. Building layers and layers of these triangles to detail the subjects’ features and create depth to the image.

Alongside her hand threaded works Imogen also makes limited edition prints and digital illustrations based on the original pieces.
