Sabrina Sachiko Niebler is a fibre artist who makes delicate, calming, paper weavings. She embeds the fibres with her reflections by composing poetry and weaving it into a thoughtfully rich fabric. Her process involves transfer of her words to rice paper through handwriting, typing, or screen-printing, then cutting and spinning the paper into yarn, and weaving with it. The words and tactility of the fibres play their part in bringing us back to ourselves as aware, feeling, physical beings. Sachiko has a Fine Arts Degree with honours from the Fibre Department, at the Alberta College of Art + Design and received the Board of Governor’s Graduating Student Award. Presently, her continuing creative practice is an act of connecting authentically to herself and others through her detailed and subtly beautiful work. Originally from Calgary, Sachiko has recently moved to Vancouver to continue pursuing her passions in art.
