Heather van der Dys
Born and raised in Texas, I married in 2011, and our 90lb dog was born in 2014. I have been an artist all of my life, like most. I have played guitar, piano, harp, and trumpet throughout my childhood. I still keep up with voice, guitar and piano now.I am 3-d in nature and dabble in many medias. The dirtier I can get my hands, the better.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelors of Fine Arts and a concentration in Photography. I have been privileged to show my work in galleries like 500X, the Roving Museum of Art, and the Dallas Library. I also interned as an assistant photographer and graphic designer during my college experience. When it comes to photography, I enjoy the subtle nuances of lighting, staging and producing. I contract out for portraits and events. My personal work has been shown in galleries such as 500x, the Roving museum of art and the Dallas Library.I take my BFA degree, experiences, and ideas to create the things that I feel express a person, emotion, solution, or brighten the world a bit. Now, when it comes to graphic design I enjoy the creativity, logic, and problem solving involved in all marketing and graphic design. I create logos, infographics, web-layouts and much more. I dabble in many medias on top of photography and graphic design; including paint, wood, installation, charcoal, graphite and anything else I can get my hands on.
