Brigitte Köhler-Kliefert was born in Stralsund in 1924 as the daughter of the artist couple Erich Kliefert and Mathilde Kliefert-Gießen . From 1951 to 1957 she attended the Art Academy Berlin-Weißensee and studied with Bert Heller , Kurt Robbel , Walter Womacka and Arno Mohr . After completing her studies, she worked as a freelancer in Stralsund from 1957 to 1959, where she was able to take over the studio of the painter Elisabeth Büchsel . In 1960 she moved to Berlin, where she continued to work as a freelancer. In addition to her work as a painter, she also worked as a costume designer. In 1961, for example, a performance of Carl Maria von Weber's “ Abu Hassan ” was a family work by the Klieferts at the Stralsund Theater , while Erich's father created the equipment and the production of Brother Martin's (1928–2016) and she was responsible as a costume designer.
Brigitte Köhler-Kliefert's motifs were mainly landscapes and portraits, some of which were taken from theater scenes. Many of the works were created during painting stays in her homeland of Western Pomerania , for example in Stralsund and on the island of Hiddensee .
