Sophie Standing: Textile Embroidery Art

Sophie Standing is a textile artist born in England and currently living in Karen, Kenya. She studied wood, metal, ceramics and textiles at Liverpool Hope University, and has worked in many different mediums.

Sophie’s textile embroidered art is inspired by the beautiful African flora and fauna. Her "pieces are created by appliqueing an intricate collage of fabric onto the canvas where her image is already sketched out. She then draws the details over the top of the fabric with her sewing machine using many different colored threads." I am amazed at the attention of detail, love and patience that must have gone into creating each of these animal embroideries. 

You can view more of her stunning work on her website or to contact her for commission work.
