“Painting frees my mind of all the mindless noise
and beckons me to listen to the whispers of color…”

Karp.Heather.CV.2017

Heather Karp is an award-winning artist and illustrator whose work features recognized landmarks, abstracted and expressed through her eyes and brush. In November 2017, she was inducted into the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) in NY, NY.

Her work has been exhibited both locally and regionally throughout the United States in solo shows as well as invitational and juried exhibitions. Heather won 2nd place in Oil for her painting, “Hanging Blues,” at the 2010 Andover Art in the Park. Her oil painting, “Innocence,” was featured in North Shore Life magazine’s 2011 summer edition. In 2013, she broke a record at the Firehouse Center for the Arts having sold the most artwork of any other artists to date. She recently won an Honorable Mention for her illustration, “Life Connected,” at the Newburyport Art Association’s 2016 Fall Juried show.

Heather uses her art as a platform to raise awareness for a cause that personally touches her world—OCD & Mental Health.  As she continues to grow as an artist, her charitable giving will remain steadfast.

Heather’s work is described as “bursting with color & life,” “full of intention & emotion,” and “emotionally conscious of the world around her.” She describes herself as an artist who enjoys seeing the environment through many different lenses. She continues to stretch her artistic muscle through abstraction—always learning and growing.
