embroidery by ileana haberman

In the beginning these pieces celebrated the audacity of using embroidery to create images of nudes. Then I began a journey of self-exploration and found a comfort and joy in viewing my own queer body as artists view their subjects. As time has progressed the pieces have become more about emotions and the lens has turned inward to bring out a more honest narrative. My hope is that people find something in the work to which they can personally relate.
