The World of Jane Austen (Stitched)
The World of Jane Austen (Stitched) is an illustration project based on the recurring themes and imagery in the work of Jane Austen. From the red coats of the militia to the elegance of a grand house, the rich universe of her books have been explored in detailed embroidery.
This series of fabric illustrations use modern colours, materials and patterns to bring to life the objects, people and situations that would have been familiar to contemporary readers.

Mixed Media Textiles
Each illustration is based either on stills from modern adaptations of Jane Austen's work or pieced together from historical sources such as the V& A archive, Regency book illustrations and portraits.
Each piece has been hand-stitched using a range of textile materials and techniques from appliqué and embroidery to fabric paint and the application of beads and ribbon.
