My passion is hand and machine embroidery; nature-inspired and colourful. My surfaces: fabric collage, quilting and needle-felting. Vancouver, BC, Canada.
They are all just gorgeous, I can't pick a favourite! Congratulation on your exhibition
Dear Kirsten, I just found your blog and website. I have off and on over the past many years have dabbled in botanical and biological illustration. I am also a keen sewer and embroiderer. I am rusty and trying to recharge my creativity in a direction that speaks to me. What I am finding is that I am happiest with needle and thread and fabric but I am also delighted when I make the time to draw. I have finally, after too many years of creative block and fits and starts have decided that to combine both talents is where I need to go. With that said, I have not been confident that what I want to do, that which I am passionate about - interpreting nature - is something anyone is interested in with all the computerized and slick art that there is to be had these days. Finding you has boosted my confidence that there is a world out there for textile art that combines the nuances of sewing, drawing and crafting. Thank you for being out there and inspiring. Best wishes on this Thanksgiving day - I have joined your blog and hope to follow as often as I can. Again, thank you for your inspiration and beautiful work.
Nice blog... thanks for sharing with us..
I'm sure I just had a whiff of that Meadowsweet! Makes me think of summer nights and fireflies! Thank you for this nice break from the raging Winter.
