Amy Jones is a needle-woman with great talent and a great sense of humour. These qualities have combined to produce some wonderful hoop-art that she has exhibited in Auckland Museum and sells online successfully.
Her workspace is a simple, immaculate corner of her living room. When I photographed her we had to work quietly (not a problem – neither embroidery or photography are noisy pastimes) as her baby daughter was asleep in the room next door.
You can find Amy’s work online here and I challenge you not to be tempted to start a ‘gallery wall’ of her work in your own home!
