*EMBROIDERY - The NZ Natives Collection

This collection was inspired by my love of NZ native flora and fauna. I feel so connected to, and grateful for, our natural environment. We are incredibly lucky in nz to have such diverse wildlife at our doorstep. I never want to take it for granted and wanted to capture that love into some pieces. This collection will be added to periodically as I create new pieces.

All items are handstitched onto cotton and mounted in a 5 inch (12.5cm) wooden hoop.

Made in New Zealand.

Designs available:

  • The New Zealand red admiral (Vanessa gonerilla) is a butterfly endemic to New Zealand. Its Māori name is kahukura, which means "red cloak".
