Stitched Textile Art

I have been looking for pictures lately that have been stitched using freehand machine embroidery. I am doing an evening class on fashion/interior textiles and would like to incorporate "art" in to my work. I found Gillian Bates. She has done some fabulous work of beach scenes and buildings in the UK. I also like the work of Lauraamiss . Her work is textile art on canvas. She uses photos and drawings as her inspiration and then also sells prints of her work, as does Gillian above.
