this artist delicately cuts and stitches botanicals by hand
Hillary Waters Fayle is the craft extraordinaire behind these dainty works of art. Using a knife, a needle and thread (and some serious skills), she spends hours carefully turning ordinary leaves into intricate masterpieces. Hillary says her work “is a celebration of what can be done when we are gentle and act with care," which is really rather lovely when you think about it (and a whole lot more wholesome than tossing fallen leaves into the green wheelie bin). Watch Hillary speak about how she combined her love of nature and art below, and swing past her website if you'd like to gaze at more of her impressive work.
