Nicky Perryman is an english textile artist who takes her main inspiration from nature. She combined machine stitch and hand embroidery to create these beautifully complex and busy surface enhanced pieces. After learning some free embroidery I wanted to look into ways to develop it further. Nicky Perryman described free embroidery as “therapeutic” and I feel completely the same away about it. I feel that if I finish of machine samples with hand embroidery it would give the sample a more tactile and delicate handmade feel. I really enjoy her combination of bright colours and her combination of these colours with the yellows and greens still holds the natural and organic look.
