Hillary Fayle studied embroidery (did you know there was such a thing?) at the Manchester Metropolitan University in England but choosing to embroider on found objects or non traditional materials brought this twist in the story. Fayle actively pursues renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials for her art pieces, like leaves first coating a non toxic preservative to protect them then employing a variety of stitching techniques to create what almost feel like geometric line drawings.  She’s used acorn shell caps, live plants, roots, and tree stumps in almost an Andy Goldsworthy fashion. Beautiful, wouldn’t you say?
