LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Austrian felt and mixed-media artist Susanne Weber is a studied biologist and has her own medical translation business. For a very long time in her life, making art was not of the vital importance it is nowadays because she had been totally discouraged by an art teacher during at school. However, later on she became fascinated by creating pictures and sculptures with fibers. She will never forget the cold winter morning in 2014 when she started felting with just a book for reference and had been instantly hooked. From the beginning, working in 2D and exploring the endless options of colours and textures were her favourite subjects, and she ist still keen to try new and exciting techniques.
Susanne's art is regularly featured in international magazines and at exhibitions, and in Autumn 2017 some of her works were shortlisted out of 2000+ entries in the Wraptious Design Competition, UK.
In 2018, the gallery ‘Polyphoner Oikos‘ in the City of Vienna, Austria, hosted her first solo exhibition ‘…mit Wolle gemalt‘.
In 2019, 'You are Me‘ was selected for #BeJane – an exclusive charity exhibition and auction of international artwork in Vienna to mark the 85th birthday of Dr. Jane Goodall.
In 2021, the solo exhibition ‘A Dream of Light and Fibres‘ was shown online during the Textile Art Berlin Event and as live exhibition in Vienna.
From 2016 to 2019, Susanne was involved in the organisation of the annual Vienna Felting Festival.
After taking some mixed-media art classes to improve her skills, Susanne finally discovered her love for pastels. Since then, she has been taking live and online classes with internationally renowned teachers in both subjects.
Together with her husband and lots of cats, Susanne lives partly in Vienna and partly in a wild rose garden in Lower Austria.
