Gerni, Heather

Heather Gerni creates each of her works through the process of intuitive painting. Neither the subject matter nor composition is planned. Instead, a natural evolution is allowed with each layer informing the next. Her paintings are vibrant and richly textured with these many layers.

During the intuitive painting process, stories unfold on the canvas lending way for Heather’s dreamscapes and creatures to emerge and evolve. These stylized paintings often have a mix of both fantasy and representational elements which range from whimsical to dark.

Heather's passion for intuitive painting led her to begin teaching this process to others in 2011. She now teaches workshops across North Carolina to students who have never picked up a paintbrush to professional artists. She paints in her studio in the quaint town of Saxapahaw. Studio visits scheduled by appointment.
