Heather Arenas

Heather Arenas’ grandmothers were both artists and her parents provided her with various art supplies growing up, teaching her to appreciate many forms of art. Today, Heather works in oils and prefers figurative work but she enjoys painting many different subjects. Her education includes a rigorous course of independent study reading many books on drawing and painting and taking workshops from respected artists such as Vadim Zanginian, Kim English and Clayton Beck III. While earning a degree in biology with emphasis on anatomy in the early 1990’s, she also studied art history and ceramics.

Heather is a Master Signature artist with Women Artists of the West, a Signature member of the Plein Air Artists of Colorado and Associate of Distinction with American Women Artists as well an associate with several other art organizations. She has received numerous awards for her work which helps others see the beauty in everyday objects, places and people.

No Time For That
Painted from a trip to Barcelona, Spain. Fast-paced and fashionable European women in the Place de Cataluna.
Heave Ho
Painted from a plein air trip to Aurora Reservoir. The Summer campers were on their own to get this huge boat in the water.
Tunnel of Love
Barcelona is a romantic city with beautiful vignettes at every turn. This scene is from one of the many cafes nestled into the old world architecture.
Dinner with Friends
I went out to dinner with friends and realized how well the cast of characters on the table represented the evening.
