A small wall hanging inspired by a photo I took some time ago. Created using raw edge applique and thread painting, with mostly batiks and hand dyed fabrics.

Inspired by the heliconia or 'Bird of Paradise' flowers that grow in our garden. Constructed out of commercial batik fabrics and stitched using invisible machine applique and finished with machine quilting using a variegated cotton thread.
Inspired by a close up detail of a leaf on a plant I photographed growing in the local rain forest. I've used a wide variety of different greens to create the detail of the leaf veins and each piece was individually cut and applied using invisible machine applique.
I created this applique design after finding this nice little creature in our garden one day when I was watering the plants.
This wall hanging was inspired by a walk in the tropical rain forest where we live.
