Who is Madame Hollyhock?
Madame Hollyhock is the name I gave to a Pale Beauty moth spotted fluttering about my black hollyhocks. I always hoped it would land on them so I could get a great picture, imagine the black glossy hollyhock contrasting with the tiny bright white elegant moth- they are my absolute favorite as they kind of remind me of those elegant edwardian tea dresses! Anyway, it never happened but the name stuck with me. I try to capture the beauty in nature that I see all around me in my embroidery art, so I often add in moths, butterflies, sticks, moss, leaves.. heart shaped rocks..whatever inspires me is used in my artwork. I chose the name Madame Hollyhock as my name is Tina Quetot..and no one usually can ever spell it correctly or remember how to say it properly..so it just seemed like a good fit.
