I base all my work on nature, the local flora and fauna that can be found if you look closely and take your time. From finding and photographing the subject matter; to the hours of focusing through a magnifying lamp, sewing the tiny stitches that slowly create the image. Patience and stillness are an absolute necessity.

The methodical stab and pull of the needle, studying the smallest detail on a spider’s back or the colour graduation of a butterfly’s wing help me to find an understanding and peace with nature. There is beauty to be found in unexpected places if you take a closer look, focus and have patience.
