Sophie Standing’s work is a breathtaking combination of painting, patchwork, applique and free machined stitch depicting african wildlife.  The work is really elaborate and detailed.  I love the use of colour in fabric and thread embellishiment, the detail of the stitch and how, despite the decorative nature of the embellishment, the finished work retains all the character and stature of the animal.
