TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THESE FINE SPECIMENS

TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THESE FINE SPECIMENS

Claire is a regular visitor to her family's second home in North Norfolk. She graduated in 2008 with a BA Hons in Applied Arts. Her current work is a ‘freestyle’ form of embroidery which can be described as stumpwork.  She is unconstrained by formal embroidery techniques which leaves her free to experiment with threads and local materials to achieve her aims.

With an appreciation of the natural world and love of drawing Claire has been inspired to study insects and reproduce these as tiny three dimensional embroideries on felt balls.  She enjoys the humour in producing insects that are realistic and presenting them as traditional entomological collections.  Claire Moynihan's work is held in private and international collections.
