Heide Proksch was born in Mährisch Ostrau,
now situated in Cechska, in 1942. She came, in 1945, together with her
mother and her elder sister to Vienna where she spent her childhood and
the school days.
1960 she completed her studies with the diploma of the Academy of Commerce.
Next she's working as a translator and later on as executive secretary.
Since 1965 she is married to the painter Peter Proksch and 1968 she decided
to finish her commercial career and have a new start as a student of artistic
textile techniques at the Academy for Applied Arts in Vienna. The designs
for her tapestries are nearly exclusively coming from her husband, Peter
Proksch and she also shows her work in common exhibitions.
