These silly little stones began as a challenge, something to do with my hands. I took them along to a market with me, just to see if anyone liked them, and they were really popular! Kids, especially, seem to love holding and touching them.
The tiny stones can be worn as pendants.

Take a drive out past the Ellie Tree. The Ellie tree has tons of sparkly blossoms, and the field below hold some flowers of it’s own, nestled among the grass. How the Ellie tree got it’s name is a mystery. Well, my son called it that and I thought it was pretty. I love the layers of land along the horizon.
Eucalyptus and Thistles
2015 Heather Snitch Acrylic and Cotton on canvas 40cm X 31cm
The thistle is a constant presence in Australian pastures. This eucalyptus doesn't seem to mind, though.
Grey headed flying foxes are a gorgeous little animal. During the day they hang out with their families, all balled up like little mangoes. This little tree stands in a drying field. In the distance sheep graze on the hills. I love the leaf pattern on this one.

This tree stands on a fabric shore, its blossoms falling away into the wind. The ocean sparkles, and more distant trees grow on the other headland.

This little Peewee, sometimes known as a magpie lark, is keeping an eye out for danger. He’s watching for his partner to return. This skyscape has notes of grey, blue and lavender. every leaf is an individual rosette stitch. Imagine the sound of the wind whistling over the hill, while Peewee calls out to the clouds.
To be honest, I don’t know what kind of tree this is. The leaves were an experiment in textures and I LOVE how they turned out.
Twisted Coastal textures - sold
2014 Heather Snitch acrylic and cotton on canvas
This tree has been buffeted by coastal winds for all of its long life. It is twisted and turned, but stronger for it. Every leaf is an individually stitched rosette. Every. Darn. One. I have the calluses to prove it. The tree stands on a crocheted hill overlooking the long-stitched ocean. A lot of thread and time went into this beastie.
Owl Pair - sold
2012 Heather Snitch cotton and acrylic on canvas
These little black owls are watching you with their glowing red eyes.
Custom Family Trees
It gives me great joy to create custom family trees.
Family trees can be produced in the style of your favourite Feraloidies tree. I am happy to mix up landscapes with the various trees.
Prices depend on the canvas size and the amount of family members.
Order one for yourself as a keepsake, or they make lovely gifts. I would know, I have given many!
Please contact me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your family tree.

This simple birch tree is one of my older works. I love the shape of the tree, and will try to reproduce the simplicity in coming work.
