Textile On Canvas | 40 x 40 x 50 cm
From high up, leaves constantly drift and spiral down from the huge lemon-scented gum tree that grows in my front yard. I used these leaves as my inspiration and core material to create this work.
Eco-printed and naturally dyed cotton fabric - salvaged bed sheet printed and dyed with Eucalyptus leaves and iron (rusty metal piece).
Embellished with appliqued leaves and naïve embroidery using raw cotton yarn that has been dyed with brown onion skins.
