'Queen' represents the tranquility and peace of a hazy sunny afternoon in Samburu, Kenya. She rests with her tower of giraffes in the shade of acacia trees.
Created with a plethora of patterned fabrics collaged together and then stitched. Close up photos in the attached gallery show both the stitch detail and the frame
Fabric collage has been carefully pieced. Each pattern is considered for colour, tone, scale and direction of print design. Once the collage is complete, it is embroidered with multiple different coloured threads.
The whole textile is stretched over a wooden frame and then sat within a deep wood tray frame (detail can be seen in the photo)
