LA-based artist Michelle Kingdom embroiders small, illustrative scenes of people in curious mythological or ritualistic scenarios, engaged in unknown actions or in vaguely defined relationships. From her artist statement:

My work explores psychological landscapes, illuminating thoughts left unspoken. I create tiny worlds in thread to capture elusive yet persistent inner voices. Literary snippets, memories, personal mythologies, and art historical references inform the imagery; fused together, these influences explore relationships, domesticity and self-perception.

Kingdom most recently exhibited at bG Gallery in Santa Monica and at a Feminist Fiber Art Exhibition. You can see some available artworks in her online shop. (via Beautiful/Decay)
