Additional information

Heidi Wiitanen Heidi formed a deep connection to her childhood home in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and her Finnish-American family heritage from a young age, and when her mother taught Heidi to sew as a child, it meant these family connections would be forever interwoven with her creative pursuits. Even as Heidi studied science in college and later began work as a laboratory scientist, her passion for the arts never dimmed. A few years later, Heidi decided to study fiber and fashion design at Finlandia University’s International School of Art and Design, where her program’s affiliation with Finland’s Kuopio Academy enabled her to explore her connection to Finnish design’s philosophy and aesthetic.
