Hillary Fayle's leaf embroidery art is delicate and intricately constructed. While autumn inspires many to collect fallen leaves, few of us would be as creative as the artist who transforms dried foliage into miniature masterpieces. Her art work goes beyond dried leaf pressing--a popular hobby for craft lovers--and features a skilled use of threaded motifs that are embroidered onto her leafy canvas.

Hillary Fayle is currently specializing in Craft/Material studies at Richmond's Virginia Commonwealth University and is a multi-talented artist that transforms dried and fallen leaves using colorful thread. The artist's leaf embroidery art pieces are delicately adorned, resulting in complex and awe-inspiring details that are hard to replicate by even the most skilled of artisans.
