Textile Wildlife Artist Janine Heschl shares her life in fabric and threads. Janine creates photo realistic portraits of animals using free-motion machine embroidery, and an exceptional eye for detail, light, colour and texture. And even more amazing, Janine is entirely self-taught.

Along with the beautiful portraits runs a deep passion for nature, wildlife and our world, and with her needle, Janine speaks out for creatures that can't speak for themselves.

Susan Weeks chats with Janine about:

  • Organising an exhibition for Jane Goodall Institute
  • Creating the 'Wounda' chimpanzee portrait for Jane Goodall Institute fundraising
  • Can we try too hard to create perfection?
  • Connecting humans and nature with thread
  • Why Janine bought a sewing machine, and what happened next!
  • Do what you love everyday
  • Selecting thread colours
  • Reaching emotions and inspiring action through art
  • The secret to stitching realistic hair and fur
  • Failure should be embraced, particularly by artists
  • The challenge of making yourself 'do' art

And so much more!
