Heike Fink | Prud'Homme, SK
Heike Fink is a felting artist, originally from Germany, now living in Prud’Homme, SK. She learned the ancient art of felting in 2004 and has spent hardly a day without felting ever since.
Heike is very fascinated by felting, since it seems almost magic how those loose fluffy wool fibres transform into a solid expressive figure! She is self-taught, learning by experimentation: and creates her fibre art using wet felting, needle felting, and nuno felting techniques.
Heike loves sculptural work, especially animals and pebbles. She draws most of her inspiration from nature, and the abundance of nature is one reason she moved to Canada. Her work has been displayed in Canada, USA, and Germany, winning several awards.
