Textile and Embroidery

I embroider animals, birds and folk art symbols on antique and vintage fabrics found in brocante shops, patched together. Sometimes they have been naturally dyed using what is found in nature itself, berries, bark, avocado stones and the occasional rusty nail or cup of tea. I am fascinated by the anonymous work of women, finely stitched and exquisite, their maker long gone, once cherished and now to be found in antique shops for very little money. Reminding us of  the frailty of what remains after our lives are over.
