IFelt

Austrian fiber artist Susanne Weber creates wet and needle felted paintings with emphasis on the magic of light and texture. Her approach is the fusion of Crafts (felting is an ancient textile process, believed to be the oldest form in existence), and Arts. In this context, fibers can be defined as a painting medium, complying with many of the rules relating to visual arts.

 

Susanne is a studied biologist and has her own medical translation business. She started felting in 2014 out of curiosity and was instantly hooked. From the beginning, working in 2D and exploring the endless options of colours were her favourite subjects, and she has been largely influenced by the works of felt artists Moy Mackay and Susan Mulcock. Nowadays, Susanne is steadily enhancing her knowledge and skills by attending various classes of worldwide renowned fiber artists.

 

Three exhibitions at the Annual Vienna Felt Festival in 2016, 2017 and 2018 were a great success, and recently - in September 2018 - the first solo exhibition with Susanne’s felt paintings has been opened in Vienna.

 

Her work is featured in Arts and Crafts magazines and juried exhibitions, and in December 2017 she was on the shortlist of 12 Wraptious Design competition finalists out of 2000+ entries.

Together with her husband and three cats, Susanne lives in Vienna, the beautiful capital of Austria.
