The Rescue. 3 Very Adventurous Cats - This is my favorite favorite!! So Awesome!! :O)
In Heidi’s own words…
My paintings are most often of cats. Not only do I adore them, they also seem to symbolize the human condition.
As but a part of the animal world, we humans are driven by the same basic desires and needs as all animals. Cats, in particular, are not shy about making their needs known. I find their shameless egocentricity makes a perfect model, within which I might make a statement or two about man; as I see him, of course.
I was born in Germany and raised in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. In my early youth archaeology and anthropology captured my fascination. Consequently, I earned a BA in Anthropology from the University of Pittsburgh and an MA in American Civilization from the University of Pennsylvania. While working in that field for over a decade, I began painting as a hobby. My cats have been my favorite subject right from the start. Over time my interest in painting eclipsed my interest in archaeology, and I have been painting full time for over 9 years. I feel very fortunate to have been able to do what I love most for a living.
