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 2009, I have been practising, 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.
I welcome your comments on my blog! Drop me a line anytime. I sell my work and welcome commissions. I can also be contacted at Monika@MySweetPrairie.ca or call 306.979.3519.
