Wednesday Art Feature: Tracy Chaplin - Gretel Girl

This week, I want to show you the work of the talented Tracy Chaplin, Gretel Girl. Tracy is an Australian based illustrator with a love of fabrics, craft & upcycling.

Not only are Tracy's works beautiful and intricate, but they are so well thought out and presented beautifully. I love how she presents them in embroidery hoops. I think this is such a unique and visually pleasing way to present her work, plus there's no need for frames!

I just adore the way she's drawn the hair in the above photo, not to mention the subtle rosey cheeks and wonderful patterns!


  1. These are so great! I love the detail, and the presentation. Wonderful find!

  2. Wow, these are superb! Definitely going on my Christmas wishlist!

  3. I like all the different patterns and how she stitched around her images, just shows how much work goes into them.

  4. So neat!! The embroidery hoops really do add some extra uniqueness.
