With the channel of the first stitch on the sewing machine, the creativity of fashion has been an everlasting passion, Nature, travel and dreamlike destinations have come to inspire my art. Collecting lovely fabrics and beads allows me to delve into a treasure trove for each unique design.
Darsie & Thread was created to share this whimsical world; with the stroke of a paintbrush and the weave of a needle.
Miniature fashion and art come together on a canvas, adorned with entwining detail. Each design is personally hand-painted and sewn, with different layers adding depth. With embellishment sourced from around the world, each piece adds another facet; threading a story within a story.
The designs are created in my atelier based in Leicester, England.
