Jaynie Himsl  fibre artist

The world we live in, the prairie skies, my garden's cycle of life - these natural elements inspire my work.    

Using repurposed, painted and commercial textiles I interpret nature in macro and micro dimensions.  By  melding realistic and abstract images,  I offer my vision of the environment.   


Jaynie Himsl is an award winning artist living in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
