Isabelle Wiessler

Isabelle Wiessler likes to draw inspiration from her surroundings. It is often the small details that her eyes perceive. But it can also be an atmosphere, a mood, a radiance that she captures in her artistic work to touch the viewer.

Isabelle Wiessler was born in Paris; she lives and works in Stegen near Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.

She has been working as a full-time (and full-blooded) artist for several years. Isabelle has been participating in national and international competitions and group exhibitions as well as in various solo exhibitions at home and abroad since around 1995. Her works have been included in various collections including the International Study Center and Museum, Lincoln, USA.

For over 20 years, Isabelle has travelled the world as a lecturer mainly in the field of textile art and mixed media – since 2020 she has also been teaching online. She loves to share her new discoveries and own techniques with others.

Isabelle is a mixed-media artist with a passion for texture, surface design and area. She is fascinated by the many ways to add lines, shapes and textures to her paintings through sewing and embroidery, creating a “third dimension”. Painting adds an extra dimension to the processing possibilities.

Isabelle joined the QuiltArt group this year and has been a Juried Artist Member of SAQA since 2014.
