Heather’s Artist Statement:

I am a Minnesota artist who works in soft pastels, acrylics, and oils, and I capture color and light in plein air studies, landscapes and still lifes. 

I create art in response to the joy and wonder that I experience in the world around me. I am inspired by nature–the dancing diamonds of falling snowflakes, the ripple of purple field grasses in the wind, the vibrant greens and pinks of a ripening pear, the blaze of autumn color.

I enjoy the pastel medium–sticks of pure, vibrant color at my fingertips. I seek to convey the richness of color, design, and space of the natural world  into my paintings. My growing edge is outdoor plein air oils, and I enjoy the richness of the oil paints on canvas and other surfaces.
