Heather Piazza Bio

A native of California's central valley, Heather Piazza joined in the Bay Area art scene in 2002 after receiving her Fine Arts Degree. She has been a custom picture framer for more then 25 years, has also curated and hung over 100 Gallery Art Shows. Heather has a passion for the non-traditional, for the variety and complexity of light, for color, texture and design. These passions come though in the frames she designs for her clients as well as in each new piece of art she creates. Whether expressing herself through acrylic and oil painting, glass lamp-working, printmaking, mono prints, drawing or photography, Heather has let creative intuition guide her work.

While other kids took pictures of their friends, Heather took pictures of the beauty around her in nature - the trees, the sky and the ocean. Heather has always had an eye for photography. She honed her technical skills in high school as part of the yearbook staff and continued her studies through her college years. Heather finds joy in capturing life around her with her camera.

Heather discovered her love for texture in 1997 while first working with oil paints. She was able to draw people into her paintings with her use of texture and give them the desire to not only look at the artwork, but to touch it as well. The use of color, texture and design allow Heather to share her vision with others. She also enjoys the soft fluid look of realism.

In 2001, Heather was attracted to a new subject for her art. She became captivated with expressing the essence of the female form in a variety of mediums on paper. The loose fluidity, the free form and unrefined sketch style lends itself beautifully to the sensual lines and natural raw beauty of the female nude.

Heather began exploring Glass Lamp-working in 2003. Working with melted glass allows her to further her move toward three-dimensional art. As the glass begins to take on its own form, she is able to add textural elements into the smooth surface of molten glass and shape the finished piece to her artistic ends.

Exploring printmaking started for Heather in 2005. Over these last many years, she has enjoyed carving linoleum which allows her to continue her exploration of texture through various cutting techniques. Printmaking has forced her to consider more graphic imagery. Her prints have evolved from black and white to multiple colors and layers.

Heather's work is derived by her enthusiasm in life and is expressed in whatever medium helps translate her feelings or fits her artistic mood. She is fortunate enough to show art regularly in all mediums. Heather looks forward to her next creative challenge, in whatever form it may take.
