I don't know if you know this but all my embroideries come from my paintings and drawings in some form or another. Some are direct interpretations of my paintings or drawings, while others are just inspired by them as in the example below.

Above is one of my original watercolour paintings which inspired a series of embroidery samples on chiffon fabric. The reason they were embroidered onto chiffon is that when I left uni I was asked by a fashion studio to create some floral embroideries on chiffon fabric in various thread thicknesses. So these are a few of my samples below.
|Chain stitch, backstitch and straight stitch|
