Heike Berl is a visual artist, based in Dresden, Germany. A graduate of the Anhalt University Dessau of Design and the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, she explores the idea of poetry and transience in life and nature in her work. In 2003, Berl studied with Professor Andreas von Weizsäcker at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, which helped inspire her to become a paper artist. Since that time she has worked as a paper artist, specializing in pulp painting, drawing and printmaking. 

 

Heike Berl received the lithography award of the Munich House of Artists Foundation, a catalog grant and a travel grant of the state capital Dresden to Sweden. Recently, she has been able to realize her artistic works on current German contemporary history as well as environmental aspects through project funding from the Steiner Foundation Munich and a work scholarship of the state capital Dresden. To complement her visual works, Heike Berl writes poetry on the themes of nature, music and art history.
