More About the Artist: Heidi started drawing when she was a toddler. By the age of seven, she could capture the likeness of people she drew. At the age of nine, her mother, an accomplished fine artist, wanted Heidi to try drawing in charcoal. Her mother put an apple on the counter, gave her a charcoal stick, and said "draw a picture of that." He mother couldn't believe the result. She said it looked better than any of the drawings that her adult students had made. It was a proud moment for Heidi when her mother sprayed her apple drawing with a sealer to protect it for posterity. Heidi still has that drawing today.

By the time Heidi was in junior high, she was well-known for drawing realistic eyes. Her friend wanted Heidi to draw and autograph a picture of eyes so she could proudly display her picture "When you're famous."

When Heidi turned seventeen, her mother decided to teach her how to paint with oils. After Heidi painted her first still life, her mother was so impressed, she told Heidi, "You don't need lessons."

Already a skilled portrait artist, in her adult years, Heidi further honed her skills by taking life drawing classes. In particular, she learned how to draw realistic hands and feet. Her teacher said that this is the most common weakness, and that those artists who master drawing hands and feet will stand out from the crowd when presenting their portfolios for jobs.

She currently writes and illustrates children's books with her husband, and also photographs nature.
