Description

I do seem to be drawn to black and white birds and the Oystercatcher fits the bill (pun fully intended) perfectly! In their dapper black and white suits with their carrot coloured bills they're instantly recognisable and also pretty common where I live.

In my work I want to capture some of the character as well as the look of the birds and animals I portray. For this piece I've used a lovely black linen for the body and bright embroidery thread for the eye, beak and legs. I use my sewing machine as a drawing tool, using stitch to define my pieces and capture the spirit of the birds and animals I create.

This unique embroidered piece comes mounted in an acid free white card mount with backing, ready to frame. The mounted artwork will arrive with you in a cellophane wrapper and will be posted out in a padded envelope to protect it. The mount measures about 41 x 51 cm and the picture aperture measures 29 cm x 42 cm.

Inspiration

I love being able to go out and see wildlife in it's natural habitat. I love to come home with a sketchbook, camera and head full of ideas! I use my Granny's old Bernina sewing machine as my drawing tool along with bits of applique to capture the spirit as well as the image of the wildlife I observe.
