This is SAQA Europe/Middle East: Germany

Isabelle Wiessler

I was born in Paris and I am living in Germany since 1980

I began quilting 1990, first traditional, later on more and more abstract. The creative possibilities, that textiles and thread gives me, invited me to see the textile as initial point and medium and to combine it with paint and textiles. It helps me to communicate my feeling and concern about themes like the effect of time in the city but also in the nature, the marks people leave on their environment.

My work has been shown in numerous juried exhibitions. I also take part to group exhibitions and solo shows in Europe, Canada and USA.

I am since 2010 SAQA Member and since November 2014 juried artist member.
Since 2000 I teach textile art and mix-media in Europe and in Canada.
