About the Artist
Heidi's obsession with nature began at an early age. With an active imagination, she spent her younger days sketching animals and creatures from her imagination. Now, in her twenties, Heidi has applied every artistic skill and talent she has gathered over the years; turning the figments of her imagination into tangible, touchable art. Every creature represents an amalgamation of her artistic pursuits, including graphic design, sculpture, painting, faux taxidermy, textile work, and biological anatomy.
Each creature is constructed with a skeleton of flexible, fully poseable armeture wire. The body is soft-sculpted using foam and synthetic filling, giving it a realistic, malleable feel. The face is uniquely hand-sculpted, painted and painstakingly covered in fur. When finished, these creatures seem to take on a life of their own; taking to any form you place them in. But above all, there is no limit to what the imagination can bring to life.
