“Art feeds my soul” – When I’m creating I’m happy. My canvas is furniture.
Welcome to Heike’s Furniture Art. My name is Heike and I’m the owner & artist.
Originally German from Bavaria I’m married to a Swiss and living in the French part of Switzerland, in Sion with my family. A few years back I discovered a talent and passion for furniture up cycling. And in the very special year 2020 I swapped my busy corporate life for this passion.
My goal is to make the world a more colorful place by giving new life to secondhand furniture with a little paint and a lot of love. I have always been fascinated by color and the possibilities of transforming something with it. Isn’t it just incredible how it can completely change the soul of a whole interior, room or piece of furniture and even our mood?
I spend a lot of time in Malta, a small Mediterranean island, which is very near and dear to my heart. This is where I spent most of my important teenage years and where even after we had left the island I stayed in touch. It’s a great inspiration place for me. Imagine a blooming cactus, so beautiful. And then the fruit of it – delicious prickly pears in different color shades; the sea with its different tones from turquoise to dark blue, the hot sun, fish markets….
I love using colors as much as a variety of techniques. A lot of different tools, layers of paint, papers, stamps, stencils, artistic mediums. Anything that inspires me.
I put my passion and dedication in each piece that I create. I’m constantly driven by my motivation to create something unique for my customers. I want them to look at their piece and make them smile when they walk into the room!
