I believe that the true beauty of a work can often be found in the details. The Lone Beader's imaginative, fun, striking works of art are proof of that statement. The time, creativity, and detail that goes into each piece is incredible; I'm in awe of the her talent.
I had the honor of talking with The Lone Beader about the inspiration behind the ACEO (artist trading card) featured here, "Tigress." This piece consists of bead embroidery mounted to an acid-free trading card and is available for sale in her shop. What I discovered was that her attention to detail extends far beyond the materials used to create pieces of art. It is also found in the careful choosing of words used to create pieces of unforgettable Haiku.
This “Tigress” work was inspired by the following Haiku written on the back of the piece:
Impatient look of desire
Awaits in tall grass.
“I used to write Haiku a lot, but haven't been inspired to lately. I think I have just been busy. Haiku is one of those things that doesn't come naturally to me, so takes some time to write! LOL. Despite that, one of my Haiku was posted on a Japanese online newspaper. I had to submit my haiku to Japan via snail mail, so I was very honored that they picked mine!”
