Heidi Farrar

Heidi is a UK based artist from Yorkshire. After leaving school, for many years Heidi pursued other careers whilst continually holding a dream of becoming a professional artist. In her early thirties Heidi began first to draw and then to paint pieces focused on her love of animals and the natural world. When she started she was looking for something to do alongside bringing up her children, after a number of awards and gallery shows art became the focus for her future career. Heidi primarily paints wildlife in acrylic and oils, bringing them to life in extreme detail such as that their realism evokes feelings in those viewing the painting. Her composition cleverly uses negative space so as to draw viewers in such that they feel they are engaging with the subject, wanting to touch the animals she so skillfully portrays. Heidi supplements her love of large scale high detail animals with regular experimental pieces that manage to display her skill whilst offering a thoroughly different type of painting style. Many collectors take particular pleasure in owning these experimental pieces which are often complete one-offs and represent an artist truly able to weave together talent and inspiration.
