British artist Claire Moynihan's current work is a ‘freestyle’ form of 3D embroidery which can loosely be described as stumpwork. She is unconstrained by formal embroidery techniques which leaves her free to experiment with threads and materials to achieve these life-sized bugs. The collection produced with felt in high detail, showcasing a combination of realistic bees, snails and ladybugs onto wool ball pedestals. With an appreciation of the natural world and love of drawing Claire has been inspired to study insects and reproduce these as tiny embroideries on felt. These traditional entomological collections of insects are realistic and presenting and some of which are ironically described as ‘pests’.
