Leave Your Mark





 As a wildlife rehabilitator  I hope to leave a small and gentle mark in the fields and forests that surround me.  This piece speaks of the illusive animals with whom we share our environment and the wonder that we experience when our paths cross.

Hand dyed cotton, machine stitching and hand embroidery.

  1. Heidi, I love how you work with your starling image in much of your work. The hand stitching is so subtle, and the effect of coloured thread on the background looks like painting.

  2. Heidi, this is intriguing, I want to see more of it in detail. The moody colours and beautiful stitching offset the delicate image so well. Great to see your little bird again!

  3. Your work is always so ethereal with so much to look at again and again. Very painterly and perfect.

  8. This is absolutely gorgeous, Heidi. I really like how you show just a part of the bird's body to suggest how fleeting our encounters might be. Your work has an elegance that I'm a bit jealous of!
