Beautifully Delicate Leaf Cuttings by Hillary Fayle

Artist Hillary Fayle creates beautifully delicate embroidered leaves in a painstaking process that combines traditional and original embroidery techniques. Fayle can make custom pieces to order.

Cutting leaves allows me to incorporate my love for graphic design and illustrative style into my work.
Most of these pieces were done for commissioned projects.

I began stitching on unconventional materials when I was studying embroidery at the Manchester Metropolitan University in Manchester, England. I began with using found materials and fabric and transgressed to leaves upon my return to America. I generally try to use renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials for my art, so this was an obvious choice.

These are leaves that I coat in a non-toxic preservative to protect them and make them slightly more resistant to tearing. I then stitch into them using a mix of traditional and original embroidery patterns and techniques. Upon finishing, they are framed accordingly. Although some of these are currently hanging in galleries, or part of private collections, I am happy to make custom pieces.”
