    Bio: Shana Kohnstamm, born in 1970, was raised in Nashville, Tennessee. She attended both the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the University of Tennessee before pursuing employment in a variety of art careers, including stained glass designer, bead-maker, scenic artist and even briefly as an apprentice ocularist. In 2006, she created and curated the “Model Artist” show, which featured the works of 22 Nashville artists portraying each other in a variety of medium. Following a wet-felting workshop at the Frist Center for Visual Arts in 2010, Shana’s primary focus has been exploring the versatile medium of wool.
