INSECTARIUM

Insectarium Collection is a heartfelt tribute to the beauty of insects, their diversity and intricate and delicate structure.  Butterflies, dragonflies and beetles arouse curiosity and wonder – their beauty captured in embroidery on a velvet cushion draws everyone’s attention and pleases the eye.

‘For this collection I have chosen insects, whose structure, despite the huge challenge of reflecting it in embroidery, immediately captures viewer’s attention. Intricate wings of the butterfly or a dragonfly, a detailed shell of the scarab or the microscopic hairs on the bee’s legs captured in the perfect embroidery designs astound with their precision and beauty’.

Most of the designs in the Insectarium Collection have been inspired and based on historic, 18th-century plates by English and French explorers.
