You Would Not Believe How This Artist Embroiders On Leaves

Hillary Fayle is a remarkable embroidery artist who chose an incredibly and truly original medium for her work – leaves.  Her eminently delicate and fragile embroideries look almost impossible on the flimsy surface. 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.
