Beverley Knight in the eye of a needle

Updated: Nov 3


This micro sculpture is my tribute to one of my favourite British female soul singers of all time. Beverley Knight is a highly talented singer, recording artist and a musical theatre actress, who grew up in Wolverhampton, England. She began singing in schools and church choirs, in 1995, she took the UK soul scene by storm with her debut album B-Funk, gaining an international fanbase in more than 20 countries with fans all over the world. In 1998 Beverley released the hugely successful second album Prodigal Sista and in 1999 triumphed at the MOBO Awards winning Best R&B artist and Best Album.


This piece took me six weeks to complete, carved from kevlar, flakes of 24- carat gold for the dress, and I painted the micro sculpture using the hair from a fly.
