St. Louis, MO-based artist Cayce Zavaglia creates astonishing photorealistic portraits that look like paintings but are actually made using painstakingly detailed embroidery.

The process, which she refers to as a “renegade approach to embroidery”, begins with a photo-shoot consisting of 100-150 portraits from which she selects the best image and then moves to the canvas where she works with one ply embroidery thread on Belgian linen to create each piece which is often not larger than 8″ x 10″.

Click here to watch a video by Garrett Zavaglia about Cayce’s awesomly meticulous creation process.
