Kingfisher Embroidery

A lot of my work used to feature hand embroidery. The picture I am featuring here is a fabric collage of a woodland scene, complete with a hand-embroidered kingfisher, that I completed several years ago. I must apologise for the photographs not being as good as they should be.

Unfortunately, I used lots of rather coarse mesh to adjust large areas of the background which looks OK in real life but refuses to photograph well. The camera seems to be able to “see through” the mesh without registering the change in tone that eyes do.

I was very pleased with the kingfisher, which was stitched quite boldly

  3. Ooo this is so beautiful. Do you do commissions? Did you sell this kingfisher collage? I would love to know more about how to go about obtaining a beautiful piece of this quality.
