I ve been a little wary of putting my works on Instagram for a while now. It s kind of heartbreaking to see exact copies for a fraction of the price out the same week on Etsy in any color you want on T-shirts and jackets before mine even makes it into a gallery. I write to people sometimes and either they re super apologetic and then I feel bad for the small business trying to survive who didn t know the original artist behind the work or they re super mean and tell me to go fuck myself. But I think I m learning to find my balance in all this, I do want to share my works and progress but I don t want my work to be driven by likes and Instagram following. Success seems to be what is quantifiable by numbers but the focus should be on the work itself. #embroidery #embroideryart
