My Name is Heidi Easton-Pichler.
I’m an American who has lived in Austria since the fall of 1989. I’m married to an Austrian and have three children. I made my first mosaic in 2002 and am self taught since there aren’t very many possibilities to take mosaic classes in Austria.
I have had the opportunity to attend a class in Spilimbergo at the Scuolo Mosaicisti del Friuli and the Mosaic School – Luciana Notturni in Ravenna as well as at the Orsoni Studios in Venice where I learned the traditional art of working with a hammer and hardie. I regularly teach classes at the Volkshochschule in Villach and in my studio at 10. Oktoberstraße 11 in Villach, Austria.
Recently I have added glass fusing and polymer clay art to my repetoire. I regularly have pieces of my art for sale at the local shop s’Fachl Villach
