Garden leaves as embroidered artworks – in pictures

American artist Hillary Waters Fayle creates intricately patterned artworks by delicately stitching colourful threads into leaves. “I want this work to ask people to slow down and think about this leaf – what beauty can be achieved when working with care.” She collects the leaves from her yard or from parks and maps out the design on each one before stitching. She first started experimenting while working at a summer camp for young adults themed around environmental education. “It was here that I first combined my passions – art and embroidery with nature.”
