Isolde Kille, born in Welver, Germany, studied visual communication at the art academies in Berlin and Dresden, finishing her studies with a master’s degree in fine arts (Meisterschüler) at the University of Arts in Berlin, Germany. As a graduate student in Berlin, Kille was involved in several independent art initiatives, that brought her into dialogue with the international art community. 
Feeling more creatively liberated in the United States, in 1998 Kille made New York her home, and embarked on a productive period that would mark her maturation as an artist. Since 2012 Isolde Kille lives and works in the beginning of the Rocky Mountains, near Santa Fe, New Mexico.
