11 X 14 Acrylic on Canvas by Judy Heiser
Heiser studied fine arts at Corcoran College of Art and Design, and Alexandria Art League. She co-founded Les Artists Locale, Plein Air Painters of Alexandria; works with ArtSpire VA, a nonprofit organization inspiring visual and performing arts; and created and taught a recreational Art Rehabilitation program at Mt. Vernon Hospital. Her works have won several awards and can be seen on exhibit in DC, Maryland, Virginia and recently at Mosaic District and National Institute of Health. She is a member of Alexandria Art League and a studio artist at Torpedo Factory Art Center, #332. Heiser paints Abstract expressionism using a contemporary pallet of mixed media -layered in charcoal, inks, graphite, acrylic, pastels and oils. The method dictates mood and content, and how life enters a painting. Heiser’s trademarks are her bold brush work and sweeping strokes of vibrant colors, an action painter whose art is suffused with ideas, discovery and mystery.
