As the world continues in its strangeness, one thing that remains constant is the beauty of nature. Through her love of all things nature inspired, textile artist Yumi Okita has captured that beauty in her stunning, larger than life embroidered moths.
Each of Okita’s creations is unique and although realistic, they are all interpreted in an imaginative way.
‘I try to capture the realism of nature… then manipulate it into the world of imagination.’
Perhaps right now we need more than ever to connect with the natural world in whatever way we can and honouring it with needle and thread seems ideal.
