Petra Singh was born in Germany, attending the College of Book Trades in Frankfurt (Schule des deutschen Buchhandels). In 1984, Petra enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts in Duesseldorf to pursue a career as an artist. While studying in Duesseldorf, she worked in an international gallery in Cologne for several years. 

In 1985, Petra moved to Brussels, becoming a founding member of Equator Production, a company devoted to producing artists’ carpets in limited editions, commissioning very well-known contemporary artists to create the designs. During that same period, she had art exhibitions of her own work in Amsterdam, Brussels and Basel.  

In 2000, Petra moved to New York City bringing Equator Production with her, and continuing to collect important contemporary art.  
2014 saw a renaissance of Petra’s company Equator Production. She is currently in the process of renewing production of Equator Production’s original editions, while also commissioning a new generation of artists to make designs for the carpets. 
In 2016, a large number of the carpets will be included in a major exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
