Collection: Lynne Hermanson

Lynne Hermanson has gone from traditional forms of embroidery to textiles ranging from abstract and geometrical designs to colorful little folk art landscapes. In 2008 while care giving for her mother on their family farm, the landscapes came into being. She  chose burlap fabric for a base, partly because it reminded her of the prairie’s earthiness and then added layers of silk, wool and hand painted threads from all over the world which symbolizes our population. The skies are hand stitched with single strand embroidery cotton and represent Saskatchewan’s “land of living skies” theme which is displayed on our license plates. The needle felting is used in order to build up a base for the hand embroidery which adds more texture and colour. In 2016 Hermanson decided to finish the 2008 landscapes into mini wall hangings and then began working on new pieces. In 2015 she became a juried member with the Saskatchewan Craft Council.
