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."
