"I am a self-described realist expressionist. I focus on the beauty of light and how it plays on the form. Inspired by what I see but taking the colors and textures a step beyond, to accentuate what I find most appealing. Subject matter chosen reflects my values in health, relationships and connections in everyday life, and the beauty of the natural world. I attempt to isolate a candid moment, that can be universally felt and experienced, to all that wish to simply be aware of and to appreciate the beauty in life."
Born and raised in suburbia, New Jersey, Heather has spent many a night in diners sketching the face across the table from me. Portraiture has always been her focus. After four years of New York City Art School she found myself back in suburbia, NJ still exploring faces, but on a professional level. Studying Illustration gave me the range to cross boundaries of Fine Art and Commercial Art, leaving her a self-proclaimed Realist Expressionist. Heather currently owns the Inspired Minds Fine Art School in Monmouth County, New Jersey. She teaches a strong traditional approach & techniques to nurture & further self-expression. Heather will be receiving her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy, which is a new challenge for her, forcing her to inevitably evolve.
Heather plans to use her experience working with people and her knowledge of Art and Psychology ...to help others on a new level.
"In my opinion, a successful piece looks like the subject and also feels like them."
"Almost by accident I began teaching fine arts classes in South Jersey. It soon became evident that this was my new-found calling. I spent five years instructing children and adults in various venues in both Ocean and Monmouth Counties."
