“My work — abstract painting and sculpture, 3″ to 12’+ — in the purest sense is rooted in the beautiful, calligraphic letterform. Like traditional calligraphy, my work also contains imperfections though more noticeable e.g. off center compositions, awkward yet interesting bent circles, which — is the absolute essence of true beauty.” ~ Brenda Heim

In addition to studio work – Brenda is a passionate mentor for artists and an unwavering advocate for employing the American Creative Class vs outsourcing. She encourages be a part of the economic solution which in turn helps maintain and prosper the arts in America. About the expressive painting workshop mentioned above, she states “I am an avid student of psychology and its relationship to health, healing and well being of the inner child/adult relationship and the significant role that creativity plays in restoring or igniting awareness between these natural human aspects. That said, I developed Expressions! A painting workshopSM as a tool to not only provide an experience of painting outside the lines but also as a means to tap into, recognize, hone and navigate between ‘no-mind’/analysis and the child/adult aspects. This method resurrected my creative Soul (1989) and is the foundation for my work, and life. I impart my process as a fine artist, not as an art therapist. Yes, it can be cathartic. So is communing with Nature!”–Brenda Heim 2016
