Sterntaler Designs

by Kathrin Welte

Kathrin is a Fredericton NB based artist and musician. A trained classical singer by profession, Kathrin has balanced a performance and teaching career since graduating with a Master of Music in voice performance from McGill University in 2008.

Parallel to this, Kathrin has always practiced her artistic interests in watercolor illustration and fibre arts, drawing inspiration from nature and its many colours and textures. In the past years she has developed a focus on needle felting, both in two and three dimensional forms. She creates a variety of animals, wall hangings and ornaments from wool, frequently combining them with other natural items foraged in the woods like branches, lichens, flowers or feathers. The subjects of her two-dimensional wool "paintings" focus on local flora and fauna.
