Clare Banks

Clare Banks was born and raised in Regina and after her marriage in 1992 she moved to Pilot Butte.  Clare has always
enjoyed creating and crafting but up until she was introduced to the art of creating works of art using fabrics and fibres she could not find any that peaked her interest.  Then in 2009 Clare was introduced to fibre art by her sister-in-law. This was right up her ally. Fibre Art combined with sewing are two of her great passions. She had found something that she truly enjoyed doing. Fibre art is a creative way of using fabrics and fibres to create an artwork. Clare enjoys creating Canadian landscapes mostly of the Saskatchewan prairies.

In 2012 Clare was introduced to needle felting and found that this, too, fit well under the fibre art umbrella. Needle felting uses wool and a felting needle to create an almost three dimensional effect.  Many people think that Clare’s works are painted and are surprised when they are told that her art works are accomplished by using fabrics and fibres. Now that she is a member of the Prairie Art Guild, Clare is thankful for the opportunity to display her art in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
