Growing up in
rural Manitoba, I developed a deep appreciation for the
breathtaking views, sunsets and blue skies that only the
Canadian Prairies can offer. Each of my fabric
landscapes is inspired by nature's detail and unparalleled
colours and surface designs found in nature influence the
direction of my work, and by interpreting these compositions
into fabric and thread, I hope to draw the viewer deep into each piece. My work as a fibre artist
has allowed me to combine my two greatest passions, fabric and
nature, to experiment in creating realistic scenes with a
compelling sense of serenity. Each sky is individually
hand-painted to create a realistic effect that brings the
scene to life. Using a collection of fine fabrics, the
landscapes are pieced and hand-embroidered to create a surface
design that captures the textures of the countryside.
These pictures reflect my endless fascination with the land
and gratitude for the earth's surrounding and beauty.
Enjoy the view!
