What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Claudia Marie Lenart

At, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.
In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:

1. What do you do?

2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use

Please read on to find out more about Claudia Marie Lenart.

What do you do?

I am a fiber artist, children’s book illustrator and author. My book “Seasons of Joy: Every Day is for Outdoor Play,” Loving Healing Press, was illustrated with 12 wool paintings that depict the joy children experience playing outside through the seasons. I also illustrated three books for Jewel Kats, who was an advocate for children with disabilities. All of my books were illustrated with wool characters and wool scenes I created and then photographed.

How do you do it?
My illustrations are created with needle felting. Needle felting is a technique in which you use a barbed needle to repeatedly poke wool, which felts the fibers together. My wool paintings have a 3-d effect.

I start my wool paintings with a sheet of 100 percent wool fabric. I then add layers of wool and needle felt them into the canvas.

Why do you use

Some years ago I created a wool painting for our local Waldorf school. It depicted children playing outside throughout the seasons. People really connected to the work and I sold several more re-creations to families across the world, as well as prints made by IPrintfromHome. I often hear from clients that the quality of the prints is so good and captures the 3-d wool. 

I have numerous versions of children playing throughout the seasons and I also have wool paintings that are reinterpretations of fairy tales. Offering prints through my Etsy shop allows more people to enjoy my creations and adds another dimension to my business.

I have been very happy with the quality of the prints and iPrintfromHome has a very quick turnaround. I can even take advantage of drop shipping directly to a client.
