Heidi Annalise – Artist Statement

We encounter a lot of complexity and ugliness in our lives, and art is my refuge from that. I didn’t grow up aspiring to become a painter, but once I picked up a paintbrush in 2013, a new dream was born. I started to devote more and more time to it, until eventually I made the scary (and arguably irresponsible) decision to leave my respectable government job in DC and become an artist.

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything? ― Vincent van Gogh

In 2015, I moved back to my home state of Colorado, and many of my paintings reflect the joy of being once again surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains and the wide-open prairie. Outdoors and in the studio, I use oil paint for its vibrancy and texture. Floating between realism and impressionism, my artwork adds an element of fantasy to the natural world with heightened colors and streamlined shapes.
