Anne Hefer was born on 26th Sept. 1941 at Hagen/ Germany. Between 1961 and 1966, she studied History of Art and German Studies at the University of Marburg and Cologne as well as at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste at Düsseldorf. In 1977, she worked in New Mexico/ USA and for some time devoted herself to digital image processing and computer art at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig. Besides having taken part in many exhibitions, the artist has worked constantly for the art magazin „Kunst 5-10“ (Friedrich Verlag GmbH) since 2004.
In her artistic activities, Anne Hefer is motivated and inspired by the various forms of beauty which oil paintings can express. Oil painting has a long tradition, but its potentials are still not fully explored. Each painting always means that the artist sets out into the unknown following her creative artistic instincts. The way she uses colour transforms thoughts and emotions from reality to a fictitious form and from this form of the imagination back into reality. In the interplay between mind, heart and hand, her works are created without any prior concepts in a flowing process that provides her with the freedom that only the creative arts can grant.
Anne Hefer can look back to a great number of exhibitions and is internationally represented by LDXArtodrome Gallery.
