Sophie Standing was born in Britain, but since 2003 lives in Kenya. Most of her machine-made embroideries, which can be very large, represent animals or wildlife scenes and landscapes. She studied wood, ceramics, metal and textiles art at Liverpool Hope University.

She often works her creations by combining appliqué work with free-style embroidery. Most of her materials are made of cotton, including the embroidery threads and the appliqué materials. She works on the basis of photographs, which are made into graphite drawings, which in their turn are transferred to the final ground material for the needlework.
