About Puja Bhakoo

Puja Bhakoo has been passionate about needlecraft since childhood and has reinvented the European art of Petit Point tapestry-making. Her hand-embroidered Thread Paintings endeavour to capture the tenderness, spirit and vulnerability of the human nude form. Each stitch aims to negotiate and balance the thin line between 'the evocative' and 'the provocative', to create a form that's nude, but not naked.
