Handstitched samples of chickens in different settings. The surrounding space affects the composition of each sample and the relation between the images. The smaller sample I feel works better in terms of composition and narrative as the chickens work together and tell a story. The colour blending and shading of the chickens gives them a realistic feeling, a suggestion that they have been taken from real life and captured in stitch.
I hand craft greetings cards for all sorts of occassions, and I am more than happy to take commissions! I am also a Textile Artist creating hand stitched images reinterpreted from drawn observations of the nature and environment around me.
