big cottonwood canyon: twin peaks embroidery

boo forever big cottonwood canyon embroidery by brinley froelich

my most recent piece, a commission to create a scene of the big cottonwood canyon. the embroidery measures about 22” W x 16” H, which is a bit larger than pieces I’ve done in the past, and was a fun challenge.

are you interested in prints, a desktop background, or maybe a different custom piece of your own? shoot me a word.

featured art in issue 6 of saltfront

My embroidery was featured on the back cover of the latest issue of Saltfront! Saltfront was started by a group of students in the Environmental Humanities program at the University of Utah. From their website

We want to tell many kinds of stories, the stories of deserts and salt lakes and religious pioneers and inner city vegetable gardens, cat and dog stories, garbage and compost stories. We want to tell the stories of people in cities and on farms, of people who wander through disrupted landscapes and wonder where this all ends up.

customized jean jacket patches + stitching for miguel

My friend Miguel asked me to embroider something on his favorite jean jacket to remind him of the Basaseachic Falls National Park outside of his hometown near Chihuaha, Mexico. I didn't want to recreate the images I found online, so I took some liberties in the design and turned it into a three-part panel of patches representing the actual falls traveling to the river beneath it. 

In addition to the three patches, I stitched his family's cattle brand onto the inside sleeve under the wrist for a subtle personal touch&nbsp;

I had a ton of fun working on this, I'm excited to work on customizing more!
