Heather McMillen's Profile
I am a Southerner who landed in Los Angeles in 2000. My earliest memories are of taking mental snapshots of the world around me, collecting images I wanted to remember. I’m intrigued by other people, and I spend a lot of time studying them. I’ve traveled extensively, and I believe the experiences I’ve had have sharpened my ability to create portraits from a place of understanding.
I view drawing and painting as an access point, an empathic foray into to the heart of my subjects. Typically, I’m more interested in individuals than in groups. For me, making art is a means to express and celebrate individuality and emotional intensity, which is why I often choose subjects from either the people and objects of my everyday life..or from artists or films that have inspired me.
In my finer moments, my life can be pretty well…
