Embroidered Narratives of Susan Boardman

January 1, 2014   The New Year

Sandra Boardman’s exquisite embroidered and hand dyed, beaded narratives of   the lives of ordinary and illustrious Nantucket women in their journals and letters in the archives of the Nantucket Historical Association. Through a familiarity with her subjects’ words, drawings, and artistic creations, she develops an intimacy with their lives that serves as the catalyst for her own designs.

Susan Boardman is currently working on a series of embroidered narratives inspired by Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.
