Marcela is a Colombian artist, her work expresses the connection she feels with wool, which she has carried since her childhood at her family’s farm raising sheep.
From a very early age, she’s had a reverence and a love for wool, and its unlimited ways of transforming into new creations in her own hands. An art form that has been handed down in her family from generation to generation.
Marcela creates intricate pieces that captivate one's attention using wool as the basis and thoughtfully adding other materials to enhance the feel and look of each piece.
Her artistic career started in Colombia in 1993. Her work has been exhibited in several art galleries in Colombia.
She moved to Nashville in 2015 with her husband. She enjoys attending concerts, the theater, spending time with friends, and visiting art galleries.
