Heather Kadar - Painter

Nature is my muse. I search out and discover details that inspire; whether it be a found object or living plant. I find a feather on the forest floor, where ravens have gathered in a dead tree above. I see a mushroom with a mesmerizing gill pattern, or an agave rocketing from the rugged desert soil. These details are what I am drawn to; a delicate balance of life in it's most intimate form. The art of nature, balance, and harmony.

I moved to Arizona in 1996, as I was drawn to the Sonoran Desert, open vistas, and the endless blue sky. This magical landscape that I live upon continues to inspire my work.

My studies include a BFA in Photography from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and a graduate of Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine. My education has lead me to be knowledgeable in all camera formats, know my way around a darkroom, experiment with alternative processes, and to create visual art on a daily basis.
