About Mary Roy

In my work I strive to create a unique embroidery works for people to cherish. I get my inspiration from Appalachian culture, beautiful landscapes, and inspirational individuals. I create each pattern by sketching directly on the fabric or drawing the design with carbon transfers to use on fabric. Both of these methods allow me to lay the ground work for what stitches and colors would be best for the piece, somewhat of a “getting to know you” moment between the hoop and I. I approach each piece with an idea for what I’d like it to look like, and strive to reach it. Though some pieces can take long amounts of time to complete, they are well worth it.

Biography

I am an embroidery artist based in Bridgeport, West Virginia. I’m originally from Boone, North Carolina, and grew up in Ravenswood, West Virginia. I pay homage to my Appalachian roots, impactful individuals, and love for the outdoors in my work. I focus on embroidering landscapes to capture the natural beauty within West Virginia, so those special places can be kept close. As the daughter of a seamstress, I was naturally drawn to fiber art and quickly fell in love with it. Being a self-taught artist, I am dedicated to learning and honing in on my craft.
