         Cathy Jane is a NZ artist who creates intricate handmade embroidery art inspired by nature. Combining a lifelong obsession with all of nature's creations with decades of experience in art and design, her artworks capture the beauty of NZ’s flora and fauna.  Each art work is made up of hundreds of tiny stitches, made via hand stitching and on a simple sewing machine without a base fabric.  The stitches are sculpted into shapes that represent a threaded version of Cathy’s found specimens, that are as close as possible to the real thing.
