Hand embroidered art and textiles inspired by the beauty of nature.

Hello! My name is Angela Snape and I'm a self-taught embroiderer. I create unique and individual works of textile art using a needle and thread. My work is inspired by the beauty and diversity of nature.

I first started sewing in 2012 when I was lucky enough to secure a place on a free local dress-making course (which I loved). Part of the course included crafts and I realised that I enjoyed this aspect of it even more than making clothes! In 2014 I tried my hand at embroidery for the first time and my love affair with hand stitching blossomed from that moment.

I have had no formal training for my embroideries and so what you see in my Folksy shop represents many, many hours of researching, practising, trying and perfecting. Everything starts out with a sketch and all designs are my own. I absolutely love what I do and hope that this comes across in my work.

Happy browsing!
