Fire and Ice, Part II

Tuesday August 30, 2011

Please check out the new portfolio for my most recent (and most ambitious) piece yet! Fire and Ice, inspired by Robert Frost’s poem of the same name, is an apocalyptic vision of the present state of political divisiveness in the United States. It was a major undertaking, and I would love your feedback. You can also see a short video of me talking about the piece here.

Ceiling Paintings up for Adoption

Tuesday December 22, 2009

heidi neff painting

I have a lot of paintings in my room. And I’ve decided to do something about it. I make objects both for myself and because, crazily enough, I have something I want to communicate. I want people to see my work and hopefully enjoy it in some way.
