Heather Clements' Profile

About

I am an artist creating and sharing beauty with meaning.

While growing up in the D.C. metro area of Northern Virginia, I was passionate about art from the very beginning. In 2007, I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. After graduation was the perfect time to branch out to unfamiliar territories while I was still young and free. I ended up on the road with some friends to Panama City, Florida, a town I had never heard of.

Months after moving to the Panhandle, at just 22 years old, I took a giant leap and became the owner of the Gallery Above, an amazing art gallery that was the hub for the sub-culture of the area. Serving as a place for innovation, Gallery Above hosted monthly art exhibits, music events for local and nationally touring bands, film nights, swing dances, and so much more. “N…

After two years of gallery ownership, I became the Exhibitions Manager and Graphic Designer for the Visual Arts Center of Northwest Florida. There I curated many large and exciting exhibits, but in 2010 I decided to leave and concentrate on what I have always loved most: creating my own art.

I am now a full-time artist and art instructor, and I am still very involved in the local arts community. My art has exhibited in galleries and museums across the country, from California to Massachusetts. I have had the honor of procuring several solo exhibitions and winning many awards for my art in local and regional exhibits.

Always drawing inspiration from the human figure, my art mixes tight realistic portraiture with rich metaphors. Exploring mathematical and transcendent connections with flora and fauna, my work celebrates a symbiosis between humans and nature. I perpetually try to create beautiful and meaningful images.
