Karen Nicol is a good friend of mine's mum.
Their home and her studio is an amazing array of art, embroidery and inspiration.
Without knowing I came across a recent interview she did about her work.

I LOVE their coat hanger staircase!
Karen has done embroidery for many designers, including Clements Ribeiro, Chloe, John Rochas, Marcus Lupfer.... as well as window displays and her own work.
She recently had an exhibition at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in London of incredible embroidered animals.
Karen's husband, Peter Clark, is also an artist and I love his dog collages...
