Endlessly inspired by the beauty of the natural world I design and make delicate botanical embroidery. My creative process begins by collecting, photographing and drawing. I then translate these ideas into digitalised and hand embroidery designs. My current collection is influenced by the psychological benefits from spending time connecting with nature. The recent isolation and slower pace of life has revealed to me the healing and restoring power of nature. Taking inspiration from seasonal colour, noticing the sunny harmonies of orange and pink and using this to evoke an emotional and joyous response in my own practice. Exploring the symbolism of flora and fauna, relating to memories and experiences, I incorporate secret messages to establish a personal narrative. My unrestricted approach allows me to reshape and manipulate embroideries which can be transferred to the body or enjoyed as pieces of art. The value of the natural world and the growing awareness regarding the importance of protecting the earth is a priority in my designs. I create with attention to detail reusing materials, considering each thread, and use natural dyes resulting in a bespoke collection of embroideries.
