Heather’s Artist Statement:
I am a Minnesota artist who works in soft pastels and pen and watercolor, and I capture color and light in plein air studies, nature, and urban landscapes.
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.
