Heike Strobel

Born in Germany in 1960, Heike took to art as soon as  she was able to hold a crayon.

At age 7 she knew that she wanted to become an artist but her parents wanted her

to learn a "real profession" so she became a nurse.

During her nine years as a nurse she got her art education at the "Gasteig Academy"

in Munich/Germany.

Heike's second career was being a flight attendant with Lufthansa, German Airlines.

For almost 14 years she traveled the globe and took art work shops in 5 continents.

Also during that time she started to collect unusual beads.

That is why you find really odd pieces in some of her "one of a kind" creations.

In 2013 Heike went back to college in Santa Fe, where she is working currently on

her degree for "metal arts" .
