Monika Kinner (April)
I am a professional artist specializing in freestyle embroidery (since 2009) as well as soft pastel paintings (since 2018). My creations are expressions of love for the prairie and originate from my own personal photographs and experiences of Saskatchewan. I am constantly amazed at the texture and intricate beauty that can be achieved by working with threads.
Self-taught in needle arts, pastel painting, drawing, and photography, I have been practicing and exploring a combination of these disciplines full time since 2009. A very 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.
As my career evolves, some of my most fulfilling experiences have been those which inspire and spark others. This encompasses the gratitude of a new owner holding new art I’ve created, to the communities of all ages that I introduce fibre art to in the public domain, to the personal discoveries and breakthroughs during courses taught. The joys all of these experiences bring me inspire my journey.
