A true love of animals

Today I am looking at English born, but now living in Africa, textile artist Sophie Standing. Her work shows sensitivity, love and respect for the animals she draws then stitches.  The details of the animals are created by sewing with different coloured threads, often using over 3000 metres of thread to get the perfect line and form of the animal. Her animals look straight at you, they engage you, they ask for your help. All of this is achieved because of Sophie's loving attention to their eyes. Sophie is a Wildlife Warrior spreading the word through the textile world.  www.sophiestandingart.com
