Oh, the beautiful things that can come from needle and thread. Humayrah Poppins once began her career studying fashion, but discovered embroidery to be her real passion. She then studied Hand Embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework and now uses her incredible skills to create beetles, butterflies and more lovely creatures that are so incredibly delicate and rich of details. Love!
I often wander through the woods near my home, where I gather leaves, twigs, feathers and other things I can find to bring back home and preserve. I also like to incorporate the treasures I find into my embroideries and with each piece I feel that a part of me has been embedded into my work. It is this part of me that I would like to share with others.
