About the Artist:  

Some stories begin on well-defined  roads  or with billboard accomplishments. But the story of an artist  usually  begins somewhere less noticeable, perhaps even unrecognizable  to most.  It is just such a beginning that gave life to the art of  creator,  Heather Edwards. Paintings were born from 5:45 a.m. mornings  during  summer breaks from school in Paradise, Utah, waking up to  breathe in the  crisp air and watch the sun rise and glow through the  blades of grass  in the lawn. Ideas sprung from thunderstorms, the  struggles of working  on a small farm and from the loyal companionship  of pets. Personal  experiences combined to shape the narrative behind  each forthcoming  creation. From that vantage point, life itself became  the paint on the brush  and the guiding force behind everything Heather  made and from as early  as her pre school years she knew that making art  was what she wanted to  do for the rest of her life. However, receiving  extra training or  attending an acknowledged art school were not to be  part of her story.  Yet, it was from her own father that she learned one  of her most  valuable lessons: observe. It was a simple enough concept,  but it stuck. Heather's paintings are the product of decades of  observation of  people, of environments, of animals and of textiles, as  well as the  convergence of every scrap of knowledge that came attached  to them. The  wonder and magic of Disney movies, both the imagery and  the music, also  helped cultivate the ideas that began to take form in  painting, and now,  boldly recreating Disney characters in a way that  brings them into the  realism of our world has become an exciting new  passion. Shared and collected around the world, Heather Edward's  paintings are  constructed in the midst of a bustling family, and  although that poses a  multitude of challenges of its own, her art has  gone on to get the  attention of USA Today, the LA Times and received  recognition and awards  from respected organizations such as Art Renewal  Center, Artist's  Magazine and Spectrum, among others. To Heather,  every painting is personal, but not necessarily in the way most might  think. "I   don't necessarily want the viewer to have the same response to my   painting as I have. Instead, my hope is that the expression I paint on   the board through hours of observation and execution of detail will   speak to them in a way that ignites thoughts and feelings unique to   them."
