British Wildlife Collection
This is a collection of eight pieces created using silk shading to create some of the most iconic animals found on the British Isles. The silk shading technique was used to replicate the texture of fur and feathers. I spent a long time looking at photographs of each animal to try and capture their movement and expression. I stitched them onto a background of ivory cotton felt, which gives them more texture. I have always loved wildlife and this collection enabled me to combine my embroidery with this passion.
