Evelyn Politzer, originally from Uruguay, now lives and works in Miami, Florida. After
attending law school in Montevideo, Uruguay and moving to the United States she
pursued her passion for art. Her beginnings were in tapestry and knitting. Creating with
wool was only natural in her native country, where the number of sheep far exceeds the
number of inhabitants. Even though she creates through traditional methods like
knitting, crochet and embroidery, the objects she makes are unconventional and seek to
spark a conversation on subjects such as place, womanhood and the fragility of the
natural environment. Working with natural fibers give her a sense of comfort and
belonging while she strives “to knit the impossible, and give voice to the voiceless.”
