The Fox's Den
Even in the most urban of gardens, wildlife will try and find a way to co-exist and there is one animal that is thriving, the urban fox. It's no secret that foxes will make their home under the garden sheds, it does, after all, make the perfect sheltered spot. Here a fox cub rest half in half out of its den. In its indecision it enjoys the sun and view over the garden.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the fox, flowers, leaves and shed were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft fur of the fox to the delicate petals. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
