The Heron

The Heron

Michelle's series of original artworks present a contemporary interpretation of much loved British birds and insects. Her meticulous choice of fabrics emphasize textures and colours, providing a surprisingly fresh interpretation on well known garden favourites as well as less common species.


The scholarly heron is perched motionless upon a rock within a pool. His sharp eyes on the lookout for a tasty fish, or  perhaps with the day's diving done he is simply allowing his feathers to dry off in the afternoon sun.

  • Details

    Materials are sourced from Michelle's extensive collection of vintage fabrics of hand-dyed velvet, silk, linen and cotton which are applied with a combination of hand and machine stitching with linen thread. The embroidered panel is mounted onto an acid free board.
