Marian Bijlenga: Horsehair, Fishscales and Threads

Dutch artist Marian Bijlenga is one of my favorite Flickr finds... she makes these stunning installation drawings with thread, horsehair, and machine embroidery:

She also has a whole body of work made with fishscales:

Her Flickr page shows much more of her work as well as beautiful photographs of her inspiration.
Some of her work is also included in the current exhibition  Traces: Mapping a Journey in Textiles at the Gregg Museum of Art and Design in NC.


  1. These are great! I love the photos of her in progress with all the white pieces of paper in the background mapping it all out. I would think you would have to see these in person to really do them justice.

  2. She really is a fascinating artist. Fishscales!
