Unique Embroidery Art
I love to embroider and through embroidery I want to share the beauty of our world, and how with lots of tiny stitches you can bring a piece of cloth and cotton thread to life.
Each design starts out as an idea or inspiring image which I sketch out and print on to fabric. Then the really fun bit happens through a palette of blues, pinks, purples, corals, black, greys and white I slowly create my version of natures beauty. It takes many hours to complete each one. They are unique, one of a kind pieces of art.
Most of the animals I stitch are endangered or threatened and this scares me so much that one day in my lifetime they could be gone. With that in mind I have decided to donate 10% of each embroidery art sale to a wildlife cause. It's the only way I can do my little bit to help save these beautiful animals. Each piece will detail in the description which charity it supports.
By adopting one of the embroidery pieces in my shop you will not only be supporting my family and me, you will also be helping save the amazing animals we share our planet with.
Recently I have started experimenting with creating embroideries of wildlife with dystopian, apocalyptic backgrounds. I'm enjoying the process and Iooking forward to seeing where this art takes me.
During 2019 I will also start to explore creating and offering pet portraits. This will be a great opportunity to get to know more furry companions.
I also have available greeting cards featuring my embroidery designs and are blank on the inside for your own message. Printed on to 280gsm textured card, supplied with a brown kraft envelope in a cellophane sleeve. Again 10% of each greeting card sale and pet portrait will be donated to a conservation charity.
By giving a little we can together give a lot...#ArtForWildlife
The Big Cat Sanctuary, we visited for the first time during October 2018 and we fell in love with the place. They take care of some the most beautiful, big and small cats we have seen. We saw lovely Maya and Willow. We took some great photos which I hope will be future embroidery projects. Both Andy and I are planning another visit next year.
Chester Zoo, is our local zoo and we have been members for a couple of years now. This means we can go for a couple of hours in an afternoon and not feel like we've wasted a day's ticket. It really is great value for money if you want to visit regularly and if anyone wants to see some of the great characters off the Channel 4 programme The Secret Life of the Zoo, we strongly recommend it. We always take our camera and Andy has got some fabulous shots for me to use for embroideries.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my embroidery art.
This is an example of one of my Wild Stitching originals inspired by a baby elephant at Chester Zoo.
