More about Claire Moynihan
Claire is unconstrained by formal embroidery techniques which leaves her free to experiment with threads and 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 embroideries on felt.
She enjoys the humour in producing insects that are realistic and presenting them as traditional entomological collections. Her work is a celebration of insects some of which are ironically described as ‘pests’
