Heidi von der Gathen received a BFA (sculpture) from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was a practicing artist for ten years during which she taught, exhibited, and curated in the States, Canada, EU and Japan. She went on to establish a successful career in commercial post-production culminating in a fruitful business partnership and the position of Executive Producer. Inspired by years of travel, Heidi returned to personal creative practice in late 2016. Encouraged by word-of-mouth interest and subsequent sales she founded Air & Earth Design as a registered business in January 2017. It’s been a terrific adventure so far!
