Andrea Wellnitz


About the artist:
Andrea Wellnitz graduated with a BFA from Iowa State University with an emphasis in painting and sculpture then went on to earn an MSW from Ohio State. Andrea has incorporated art in working with youth and adults in the US, Jamaica, Uzbekistan and Austria. Andrea's personal artwork is often reflective of her life experiences and her love of nature. Andrea was introduced to the wet felting process while on sabbatical in Austria. Andrea then traveled to England to study how to combine wool fibers with silk and other fibers through classes at the Moral Fibre Studio. Andrea is inspired by the possibility of the wool and its versatility. Wool can be wearable or sculptural, colorful or neutral, hard or soft. Its potential is only limited by the creator.
