Heather Scofield’s artistic journey began in the urban outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio, where a yearning for open, untouched natural landscapes took root. After relocating to the countryside of Northwestern Connecticut and the broader New England region her appreciation for the natural surroundings deepened.
Expressing the profound impact of these diverse and captivating vistas led the artist to embrace the art of painting. She often uses vibrant colors, dynamic light, and the interplays of lines and shadows in her work. Scofield’s artistic style has been characterized as “kinetic-vibrating with color and movement." Through a blend of on-site observation and imaginative exploration, she channels her passion onto the canvas.
Her influences span a range of luminaries, from the trailblazing Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven to the evocative Emily Carr, Charles Burchfield, and Marsden Hartley. The legacy of the Impressionists and Post Impressionists also finds resonance in her work. Modern channels like Instagram have also introduced her to a diverse array of contemporary artists that offer daily inspiration.
