Hand embroidery creating leaves being swept up on the breeze - they are searching for a place to settle.
I like to use thread as I would use paint, looking for the subtle changes in colour and building up colour. In this series of work I've raided my hand dyed wool collection and focused on the variegated yarns and played with the texture and their changing colours. Mixing in linen thread to add contrast.
The layers have been stitched into soft white linen which has been layered over an old worn and soft peach blanket, layers of running stitch and detached chain stitch scatter over the surface before placing the leaves over the top. Then I pick out colours and scatter them in seed stitch across the surface continuing the movement and flow.
Mounted on conservation grade board and set inside a hand painted bespoke frame with no glass, so you can enjoy the textures and have a more intimate relationship with the work.
To dust/clean the work run a sticky pet hair roller over the surface.
Frame size: 24.5cm x 24.5cm. Art work size: 15cm x 15cm.

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
