Colours, textures and the tactile feel of fibre materials inspire me. I enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to make these materials and techniques work together to interpret an idea or subject into a fibre art piece.

My background in animation has been a large influence on my work and when it transitioned to a computer generated art form, I couldn’t see myself working at the computer all day… I needed to continue working with my hands.

Working with fibre offers limitless opportunities for artistic expression. I am able to engage the viewer on intellectual, emotional and sometimes spiritual levels.

I love the tactile quality of threads, fibres and textiles. The potential to use or alter the surface, manipulate, combine, embellish and raise the surface is wide open.

I create fibre art because I just have to make things and fabric is so addictive and versatile.

Creating Fibre Art is about sharing my connection with nature. It is a way to convey my ideas, stories and values. More than a business, creating fibre art is self expression; slightly addictive and extremely therapeutic!

Luscious fabric, threads, beads, colour and texture have been a passion all my life. Combining them when creating fibre art is a joy and immensely satisfying. I simply want to create something beautiful, original and at the same time explore.

I love working in colour and texture. There is a contemplative nature to the work, which brings me peace and the desire to improvise and to create. Working with felt, beads and embroidery thread allow me to express my delight.

I use mostly quilting techniques to create landscape fibre art, influenced by incredible fibre works from generations of prairie women. The colour and textures of textiles, beads, seeds, and threads are as inspiring as the beauty of nature.

I have sewed, hand stitched, and quilted from my teens years. One of my friends, in our quilt group, shared her fibre art with me. This motivated me to take the challenge to create fibre art.

I started working with fibres early on, doing needle work with my mother and it stayed with me. Working with fibres is a very tactile experience and offers creative opportunities different than other arts and crafts.

Call it upcycling, recycling, or even reinvesting in the environment, my wish is to achieve the innovative coupling of art & repurposing. Thrifted fabric becomes a back story to art-on-the-wall or a functional article for every day use.
