These beautiful little birds are painted using acrylic paint, within an outline which is stitched onto canvas freehand using my sewing machine. This creates a stunning effect. This item is made to order.
Beautiful colours painted onto natural fabric celebrate the joy that many people feel when they see the little birds which frequent our gardens. The stitched cotton outline gives depth and a very life-like quality to the painting.
I have always loved garden birds. As a child we used to watch eagerly as the young blue tits flew from the nest box by the sitting room window. Growing up in rural Hampshire I have been blessed by being surrounded by wildlife. Now my own children have a good knowledge of the natural world around them, and know how to appreciate it and look after it.
