Department of Art Alumni
Heidi Gendron '07
Heidi returned to school to pursue an art degree while raising a family. She graduated Magna Cum Laud with a BA in Illustration. She prefers oils after working for years with colored pencil.
She says, " I have always been inspired by nature and fascinated by the various Native American tribes and their view of the world around them. They see nature as not only the creation of our world but also the guiding force behind it. The animals are both the created and the creators."
Currently pending submission for publication, she hopes her first book, "Why the Creator made the Butterflies" will prove to be the first of many books to come. Each of the color illustrations were done with oil.
She is working as store manager for Choice Pet Supply's Westport Ave, Norwalk store. Available for commissions for pet/wildlife/fantasy art in oil, colored pencil, or 3D-digital, as well as digital photo manipulation/compilations. All correspondence for freelance work is asked to please have "commission request/inquiry" in the subject line.
