I lived in Kenya from 2013 to 2015. The zebra is one of my favourite animals and this is a Plains Zebra. Alone or in a herd (or zeal), they make a striking vision.
A question you might ask is "are zebras white with black stripes, or black with white stripes?"
This fabric collage with free motion embroidery was based on one of my photographs from this time.
Review from the collector;
Katy's 'Grazing Zebra' is the most beautiful piece of art that I own.
Looking at it brings, in equal measure, joy and and a sense of calm.
The way Katy captures the essence and soul of these animals is incredible.
Her eye for colour and detail is amazing and the way she uses thousands of stitches to create her stunning textile pieces is astounding.
