Artist's Statement: As the granddaughter of horsemen, I have had a lifelong love for our equine friends. I spent most of my childhood trying to perfect drawing them. Today, I still have that love for horses and other animals, and it still carries into my artwork. Nature captivates me, just as it does for so many people. It lends itself to being recaptured on canvas, paper, in sculpture, or through the lens of a camera.
Growing up in Washington state, I fell in love with the Native American art of the coastal areas. Through the years, that same style has crept into my own art. I moved to Colorado over 18 years ago and have been hooked ever since. The animals of it's mountains and plains are now also the subject of my creative endeavors. I work most often in acrylic on canvas, and watercolor. Paint is a very freeing and versatile medium for me.
My artwork simply speaks to who I am. An animal lover, and a native of two very beautiful places. For art purchase inquiries, please contact Heather at HALedbetter@gmail.com

Artist's Statement: I’ve been taking photos off and on since I was old enough to hold a Kodak Brownie (a long time). In 2004 I bought my first digital camera and it rejuvenated my interest.
I enjoy taking photos of landscapes, flowers and wildlife. National Parks of the Western U.S. are my favorite places to go. My favorite photos have lots of vivid colors. It’s fun to be able to share them with others.
