Megan Hammer earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art from the University of Northern Iowa in 2003 with an emphasis in painting and drawing. She has always felt a connection to nature, which has influenced her subject matter over the years. Recently, she has allowed this passion to influence her work even further by using the natural element of wool as her medium. Where a brushstroke once was, a tuft of cotton-candy-like fiber takes its place. Where a pencil would have created a sharp line, a needle now pushes a tiny strand of wool into place. She is continually surprised by the wonders of creating art with wool and loves sharing her techniques with others.
