Heather Kirtland

I am a graduate of The Maryland Institute College of art, and a recipient of a The Maryland State Arts Council Grant. I have lived most of my life in Baltimore and currently reside in a rural part of Maryland with my husband, two kids and our chocolate lab. I try to travel when possible, I find it greatly effects my work as well as my peace of mind. I work in various mediums, primary oil paint and encaustic.

The majority of my work explores basic emotional states. We've all found ourselves in varying situations of confinement, camaraderie, reverie and desolation. There are moments when we are part of a community, and moments where we are isolated. These scenarios might evoke a different emotional reaction for each individual depending on time and place. I intend to bring attention to this universal human condition

Within each of my painting I also find a joy in the tactile. I create abstracted moments that reference a particular composition usually found in nature. I am drawn to beautiful moments within a painting. There is the small nuances that a color, line or texture can create. Sometimes that beauty is enough.
