London based Abigail Brown hand stitches these colorful birds from new and reused textiles. After receiving a BA in Surface Decoration and Printed Textiles in 2003, Brown worked as a designer and illustrator of children’s books, children’s wear, stationery, and advertising. Still she never lost her childhood love for textiles. Her website says, “Abigail is a continuous collector of fabrics, either bought new or used items she gathers to give new life to… She loves the colour and vibrancy of the new fabrics but the life that still lives on in an old garment or piece of cloth, and enjoys the process of turning it into something new. Her work centres around animals because they fascinate and inspire her.”
