Hand Embroidery

 Hand embroidery and stitch are my preferred methods of mark making and all my Garden birds are hand embroidered. I work deliberately stitch by stitch and love the slow meditative nature of hand sewing. I take my themes from nature , often hand printing and hand sewing the backgrounds of my pieces. I'm concerned with texture and pattern, layering print and stitch to achieve tactile pieces inviting to the touch.
