Sibyl Heijnen was born in Kerkrade, The Netherlands. She went to the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and applied herself to monumental textile design and painting. She took also all the opportunities to qualify in a great number of other disciplines.
The passion for her work brought her quick success. As a young artist she won the prestigious Jugend Gestaltet price in Munich, Germany and in Japan she got the Excellent Award.
Japan embraces still the talent of Sibyl Heijnen. Often she exhibits in leading galleries and important museums. But also in other parts of the world she has a good reputation.
Sibyl Heijnen had studios in Tilburg, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Venlo before she settled in Almelo. There she converted a former factory building into an efficient and inspiring working place for her monumental art.
