Cayce Zavaglia

Poking around some archived online discussions about embroidered portraits from a few years back turned up a link to Cacye Zavaglia's jaw-dropping work. Painterly applications of thread or photo-realistic reproductions don't usually inspire me as much as they impress, but her work is not to be believed. The work seems to date back to 2003-2004, but I've been unable to turn up any information about this artist other than a link to images via the Lyons Wier / Ortt gallery in NYC.
