Allison Barnett is a hand embroidery artist based in Bentonville, Arkansas, and the owner of FernWerk. While her day job revolves around writing, she loves to fill her spare time with artistic hobbies.

Hand embroidery became a favorite pastime due to the meditative movement of repetitive stitching. The subjects of each piece range anywhere from photo-realism architecture renderings to motivational sayings and imagery.

Allison loves to experiment with different textures and elements through thread. Embroidery has become the medium that allows her to give body to the creative ideas in her mind trying to come to life.

No matter what she designs, Allison's goal is to create unique and colorful decor that makes people smile and feel seen.
