Embroidery artist Humayrah Bint Altaf sews fancy insects and trees by combining antique gold crimp cords, hundreds of metallic beads,
Rococo rope and other delicate materials. Eventually, scarabs and whale bees that could be scanned from the canvas became ready for flight.
“I usually walk around the woods near my house to collect leaves, branches, feathers and other things I can find to bring back and protect,”
Bedford-based Altaf says. Ben I like to combine the treasures of nature in my embroidery, and I feel that with each piece, one piece is embedded in my work,
dedi he said. With a background in fashion design, Altaf had the opportunity to study at Royal School of Needlework,
which helped her start her career in embroidery.
He now sells original artwork from an çevrimiçi mağazadan and shares most of his work on Instagram. (Through the Creators Project)
