Heidi M. Lorenz was born in Muenchweiler, Germany December 18, 1965. Heidi spent her childhood predominately in the United Kingdom where magnificent coastline & country life enthused her sensibility toward art, horses, & the sea. Heidi re-reads “Black Beauty” by Anna Sewell over & over in awe of the illustrated pages that shaped her initial artistic impression. Summers were often spent in the United States where Heidi’s grandfather & father furthered an art interest by exposing Heidi to their alternative style pen & inks. Heidi’s parents encouraged the philosophy that; “One’s life is purely what one makes it!” As a minor Heidi would hike several miles to visit the local “Red House Museum” in order to experience authentic works of art. As a teenager Heidi traveled further a field to view original oils by artist Lucy Kemp-Welch at the “Russell-Cotes Museum” & eventually as a young adult Heidi would encounter first hand the vast art & cultural scene of London, Paris, & many other great cities!
In 1985 Heidi studied business at Brockenhurst College, Southampton. Heidi relocated to the United States in 1986 supporting strong British influence & work experience in the graphic arts. While in the United States Heidi gained a Bachelor of Psychology & began art education at the University of NH in 1995.
