I have hand embroidered for many years now and and shown above are some examples of how I have used thread to add texture, depth and glorious colour to my drawings.
I am currently releasing embroidery patterns and kits to encourage others to try embroidery. 
Embroidery is not difficult and is such a fun and versatile craft which can stretch you creatively and help you relax. You can go at your own pace, unpick stitches, fall in love with all the beautiful thread colours available, make up your own techniques and stitch beautiful gifts for other people. 
If you like the sound of that visit the embroidery section in my shop on Etsy. I also have a free pdf embroidery pattern available if you sign up to my monthly newsletter. Read all about it here on my blog.
