Book LIFE IN SEASONS - The Embroidered World of Nicola Jarvis, Volume I WINTER/SPRING by Inspirations Studios, Australia
Nicola Jarvis has created a collection of embroidered artworks that capture the changing seasons in the world around her.
Early each morning, Nicola and her beloved golden retriever, Quince, embark on a daily adventure exploring the Warwickshire countryside. This daily ritual has become the inspiration for a collection of stunning embroidered pieces, where Nicola has captured the changing seasons in the world around her in stitch.
In Volume 1, winter and spring are showcased in eight vignettes of local wildlife from a badger, lumbering through frosty undergrowth, a fox pausing beside a misty meadow, sparrows singing in the hedgerows to a moth spreading its delicately ornamented wings in the warm air.
Each design reflects the essential connections of animal and plant life through Nicola’s unique, embroidered ecosystems of flowing lines and intricate patterns, balancing texture and colour with wool, silk, cotton and metallic threads, all worked onto printed panels. A world of wonder and natural beauty awaits as you stitch your way through a Life in Seasons.
