My Name is Heaven


Oil on linen


  • 22 x 28 inches, unframed – $1,615

Even though I have not had a formal art education, I have taken many workshops, hopefully, to hone my skills. I have received several awards and have participated in a few solo exhibitions. Until Covid-19 struck in 2020 I could be found displaying my artwork at several art festivals over the summer throughout the region. My medium of choice is oil with acrylics being a close second. My style of painting is primarily representational with an occasional abstract; and my inspiration for subject matter comes from family, friends, nature and travel. I am intrigued by light and shadow and have been since I was a small child. I paint what I like! “My Name Is Heaven” was inspired by a photo of her when she was about 3 or 4 years old. She is my fifth cousin. The expression on her face touched me. I wanted to capture her in a classical style.
