Anna Heidenreich was born in Carmel, Indiana and currently lives and works in Indianapolis. She received a BS in Elementary Education from Indiana University in 2003 before moving to San Diego, California where she lived a nomadic life, devoting her time to cultivating her own style of art. As an amateur ornithologist and the daughter of a science teacher, her mixed-media pieces are inspired by the scientific world, especially biology, with spiritual overtones. Described as organic, vulnerable and human, her art has been received to much acclaim at galleries in both California and Indiana including The Gallery at Bluefoot in San Diego where she was a resident artist and the Harrison Center in Indianapolis. In 2010, she was selected as a featured artist for the Great American Songbook event marking the opening of the Palladium Arts Center in Carmel, Indiana. She studied studio art at the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis.
