Welcome to my blog! My name is Monika Kinner-Whalen. (Pronounced Moe-nee-ka.) I live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I started this blog when I started creating fibre art.
I am a dedicated fibre artist specializing in freestyle embroidery. My creations are expressions of my love for the prairies and often originate from my own personal photographs of Saskatchewan. I am constantly amazed by the texture and intricate beauty that can be achieved by working with threads. I am self-taught in the areas of needle arts and photography. Since 2010, I have been practicing, exploring, and combining these two disciplines on a daily basis. An extremely positive public response to my work has gained me exhibition invitations, awards, media attention, teaching & public speaking opportunities, as well as commissions locally, nationally, and internationally. I am excited to continue my work as I see my skills and art improve with each new piece.
