Textile artist Larysa Bernhardt loves making needlepoint butterflies. To create her artwork, she uses textile treasures she has been collecting since she was a little girl. The artist breathes new life into her magical creatures.
“Silent protectors for your home, quiet library companions… I’ve been collecting vintage, antique and heirloom quality modern day textiles as long as I can remember…this is my way to give them new life,” the artist shared with Bored Panda.
Each butterfly is a unique piece of art, and its wings represent a beautiful vintage image. Human portraits, flowers, clouds, and mushrooms are just some of the pictures this artist creates.
