Natural History watercolour artist Heidi Willis
An entirely self-taught watercolour artist, Heidi became a full time artist in 2003 and quickly established herself as an emerging artistic talent in Australia.
Heidi is extremely successful as a wildlife, natural history and botanical artist being featured both nationally and internationally in prominent exhibitions. Heidi has work held in a permanent collection in the USA at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation and has won The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize five times to date. Heidi’s work has been published in numerous publications including the International Artist Magazine and the Australian Geographic Magazine several times over.
Heidi is the official artist for The Australian Geographic and has most recently been published in the January-February issue with her illustrations of stunning and diverse Australian Floral Emblems.
Not only does botanical art require an extraordinary accuracy, Heidi’s medium of watercolour to create her paintings is also exacting; the combination of water and only one chance to get it right is one which requires a plethora of talent. Following Heidi’s artistic career, she certainly has precisely that: a plethora of talent.
Heidi’s work has been reproduced onto tote bags, phone cases, pillows and stunning pendants for necklaces.
Heidi will be at our annual Festival of Two Palettes on 19th and 20th March! Drop in, say hello and watch Heidi demonstrate and showcase her stunning art!
