Leaves Embroidered In Extraordinary Detail By Artist Hillary Fayle
Hillary Fayle is a remarkable embroidery artist who chose a truly original and meaningful surface for her work – leaves. Her eminently delicate and fragile embroideries look almost impossible.
For the leaves to remain whole, Fayle covers them with a nontoxic preservative beforehand to stiffen them and protect them from possible harm. And them the fun of sketching, stitching, sewing and embroidering begins.
“I generally try to use renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials for my art, so this was an obvious choice,” writes Fayle.
