About the Artist
My name is Heather, I have often contemplated changing it to Feather, but I don’t because I like that my initials are HA on my paintings. I paint loosely, inspired by my photographs snapped around the island. My favorite subjects are tropical flowers, papayas, cute houses, and the beach. I find color inspiration in vintage photographs and stacks of old Pyrex bowls. I enjoy the process of creating abstraction within realism. I lean toward bold strokes and colors that leave space for imagination and play.
I live in Kaneohe with my talented husband Jon Almeda who is a ceramic artist and our giant tuxedo cat named Friend. We live in an open loft space with big windows looking out at the Ko’olau mountains which are a constant source of inspiration. I have a small studio near the beach in Kailua where I try my best to paint everyday.
