Heidi is the founder of CreARTives... and has used her artistic talent and business acumen to build a thriving Art School and Gallery from the ground up.
Heidi is a self-taught artist, starting from just the skills she learnt at school she shifted from it being a hobby to a full time profession when she moved to Leeds in 2015. She is now a regular at Art Shows and Galleries around the country with her work highly sought after by collectors.
In 2017 working out of her first studio she decided to begin a Children's Art School so that she could pass on her skills and experiences to a new generation of artists. Working with them to nurture their talents and belief that they are capable of making high quality art and should they want to building a career out of it.
Three years on and the Art School has grown to the extent that CreARTives... has now moved to Chapel Allerton and opened a street front premises. With two classrooms, a gallery at the front and the intention of a dark room being put in place Heidi's CreARTives... dream has now taken off.
Heidi continues to work as an artist, teacher and oversees the gallery and can regularly be found painting in the front window.
Heidi is an established and experienced portrait artist and is available to undertake work reproducing your loved ones (human or animal) in paint or pencil.
Her attention to detail will ensure that the finished art will be a faithful rendition of both their look and their character.
