Evocative is the word Michelle Kingdom would use to describe the emotionally charged and complex pieces she creates through embroidery. While she plans her work before she begins it, to Kingdom, the process is the best part as it leads to moments of experimentation and unexpected discovery that planning cannot. Kingdom studied traditional fine art in college and she began using embroidery as her medium as a refuge from the large, conceptual work that she felt the art scene was too focused on at that time. In all mediums, the work Kingdom tends to be drawn towards is personal, meaningful, and thoughtful; Kingdom reflects this in all of her work as her piece Indelible clearly demonstrates her desire to capture the interior aspects of the human experience through a creation of psychological landscapes.
