Sweet Williams in textile art. It's only taken me five years to create my favourite flower in my favourite art form! This piece was so much fun and gave me the opportunity to get creative with some free motion embroidery. A fresh contemporary take on a summer favourite.
I took the opportunity of using some silks from Thailand which were given to me some time ago. The colours were absolutely perfect for this piece and the pure authentic silk was a wonderful bonus.
Sweet Williams aren't around for long and flowers like this feel extra special as artwork as they get to be appreciated all year round by lovers of this special summer highlight.
This piece is available as a limited edition print and the original is on display in my gallery and for sale.
