Hillary Waters Fayle – Meet the Artist

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the beautiful and detailed botanical hand embroideries by artist Hillary Waters Fayle.

Each and every project is a “connection between nature and the human hand”. She collects, sorts and carefully prepares each leaf before beginning the process of marking and slowly hand stitching.

In this YouTube, Hillary shares her fragile work and explains how she creates her art. Her latest commission will be displayed in the US Embassy in Sri Lanka.
