About the Artist:

Heather Arenas’ grandmothers were both artists and her parents provided her with various art supplies growing up, teaching her to appreciate many forms of art.

Her education includes a rigorous course of independent study reading many books on drawing and painting and taking workshops from respected artists such as Vadim Zanginian, Kim English and Clayton Beck III. While earning a degree in biology with emphasis on anatomy in the early 1990’s, she also studied art history and ceramics.

Heather is a Master Signature artist with Women Artists of the West, a Signature member of the Plein Air Artists of Colorado and Associate of Distinction with American Women Artists as well an associate with several other art organizations.
