Winter Park Artist: Heidi lifrage
Heidi is one of the local artists we cherish here in Florida. Although Lifrage was born in Atlanta Georgia, She was raised most of her life in South Carolina and Florida. The first art class Heidi Lifrage ever took was in 1997 when she moved to Sofia Bulgaria. This is where the creativity flew onto the canvas. Heidi became hooked to the creative art world and still loves to paint twenty years and three children later. Continue reading
The art of Heidi Lifrage
Heidi specializes in oil paints and acrylics. Portraits of young children are among what she loves to paint the most. The expression children make is so innocent and true, who wouldn’t want to see their sweet faces? Initially, Lifrage illustrated her two sons ‘ when first getting into children’s portraits. Then she started including her daughter after she was born into the paintings.” As my Family continues to grow, my art will continue to grow,” says Heidi. The paintings eventually started expanding into oil canvases of love and comfort for many people. Her work grew into commissioned pieces for other families. ” I continue diversifying the scope of my paintings to keep my interests fresh such as landscapes and architecture.”
Bold, Bright, and beautiful
Heidi Lifrage’s oil paintings are filled with tons of bright colors. Just like her, her paintings have made a lot of people smile. A lot of thickly layered paint is essential to her work and style of art media. Her work is mostly influenced by the works of Susie Pryor (bold passion and reflection) and Carolyn Anderson (yin and yang, light and dark, warm and cool media’s), Heidi Lifrage is inspired to experiment in trying to learn multiple different mediums like going from abstract art to a more realistic type of feeling for her work. “Painting is an ever ending journey that never ends. And I love to travel.”
