Having children changes everyone but for Janine Heschl it changed more things than one as after years of numerous academic achievements and jobs she finally discovered her true passion as a textile artist. While sewing clothes for her young children she realised sewing in a straight line wasn’t for her and the rest is history. It is wildlife in particular that has stood out for Janine and her animal portraits are both realistic and emotional, especially given that most of the subjects are endangered.
Janine is exhibiting her #extinctionisforever series 4th-6th of May, 2018 in Karlsruhe, Germany.
