"Painting frees my mind of all the mindless noise
and beckons me to listen to the whispers of color..."
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. Her oil painting, “Innocence,” was featured in North Shore Life magazine’s 2011 summer edition. In 2017, her painting, “Rain,” was chosen as the book cover to a Collection of Poem titled Water ~ Dreaming by Deidre Callanan.
Heather uses her art to raise awareness about OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. As she continues to grow as an artist, her charitable giving will remain steadfast. She currently sits on the West Newbury Cultural Council as Chairperson and has been a member for the past three years.
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.
