A beautiful mix of drawing, embroidery and photography is what makes the creations of Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza so special. Her older creations were more delicate, focusing on creating a balance between wildlife and the human race. By comparison, her latest work is a bit more intense, heading towards a rougher direction by analyzing the human body itself and changing her embroidery technique as well as the colour range she uses.

Right now she involves more photography and has abandoned the fine threads she used before, replacing them with more classical stitches to create a three-dimensional look and feel.
