I have recently started to create my own work again and while walking I have been able to reflect on the beauty of nature. This is where I have taken the inspiration for my work, in particular the imperfections in leaves and seeing how I can embellish these with stitch or bead work. Each piece is hand printed and unique in my work I aim not to replicate the designs. I enjoy looking at each leaf individually and exploring its features to see where the imperfections lie and how these can be enhanced. The beadwork is predominately placed in sections where the leaf has started to decay and I see this as enhancing the beauty of a natural form.
