I make this claim with mixed emotions, as I am incredibly happy to have successfully finished my Digital Embroidered Portrait Artwork and yet I am rather sad that it has come to an end.

The left hand image below, is the very first digital embroidered self-portrait of myself. The right hand image below, is my final digital embroidered self-portrait of the Amaya Embroidery Machine. Both embroidered artworks were produced via the Amaya Digital Embroidery Machine & CAD/Design Shop Pro.
