Life in Seasons Volume 1 Winter & Spring

The Embroidered World of Nicola Jarvis

Nicola Jarvis


Early each morning, Nicola Jarvis and her beloved golden retriever, Quince, embark on a daily adventure exploring the Warwickshire countryside. This daily ritual has become the inspiration for a collection of stunning embroidered pieces, where Nicola has captured the changing seasons in the world around her in stitch.

Each design reflects the essential connections of animal and plant life through Nicola’s unique, embroidered ecosystems of flowing lines and intricate patterns, balancing texture and colour with wool, silk, cotton and metallic threads, all worked onto printed panels. A world of wonder and natural beauty awaits you in these eight vignettes of local wildlife.
