Thread and needle is the main tool that this English artist uses in her works. Sally Hewett’s grandmother, like many of our grandmothers, was a seamstress.

He has scissors that are more than one hundred years old, perfect for his works.
An unexpected start, the body behind the scenes
The possibility of creating parts of the human body behind the scenes arose unexpectedly. Sally was disconnecting a bit of art, which absorbed her so much, in the way her grandmother taught her: Cosiendo. He was making a flower, but he realized that it looked more like a nipple. He continued to see it represented in a clear and very artistic way. A new kind of art was born, behind the scenes.
The human body offered him many possibilities
Once she had finished her first nipple, Sally discovered that the human body offered her many possibilities. Imperfections have captivated her since she was a child. Her best friends had acne scars that seemed incredibly beautiful and the others a huge upper lip.
