Lo­ca­tIon: US Web: www.heather­shirin.com eMaIL: info@heather­shirin.com MedIa: Acrylic, pa­per and gold leaf Heather paints Art Nouveau por­traits of women, in­flu­enced by the works of Al­phone Mucha and Gus­tav Klimt. She works out of her home stu­dio in Asheville, North Carolina, and her cur­rent se­ries fo­cuses on us­ing fine art pa­pers, me­tal­lic paints and gold leaf to cre­ate the woman’s hair, cloth­ing and the back­ground de­signs.

“I’m in­ter­ested in ab­stract­ing the fig­ure into the back­ground.” she says. “I also want to in­cor­po­rate the idea of be­ing in outer space – us­ing neb­u­las as a colour­ful and in­ter­est­ing place to find some­one think­ing.”
