This is a professionally done piece, and will give you many years of enjoyment, as well, as increase in its aesthetic value. We have recieved nothing but ooh's and awe's, from everyone who has come in contact with her work. The work is initialed by the the artist in the lower right corner. The colors are vibrant in Stevens face and are amazingly accurate. This piece was done with a magnifying glass. It is truly a museum piece.
The portrait itself is not a lithograph, or painted picture, or a reproduction, or sew by the numbers. It is a completely hand stitched original work of art. The only one of it's kind! This is an excellent investment! The artist is tremendously talented. She can hand stitch any portrait. She is now working on John Lennon, Janis Joplin, etc. She plans on doing all the greats. There is no other artwork out there such as this type. As she finish's them, they will be displayed here for sale.
