about the artist
Heather Lea Reid’s artwork is born out of a love of personality and pattern. The resulting subject matter of her work is a mixture of figurative and pattern and design. For her, “art making gives me space to indulge in my romanticized admiration for thoughts, emotions, sciences and passions. I aspire to represent detailed and layered truths.”
Reid graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wright State University with her BFA. She has painted professionally since in addition to organizing art exhibitions. Painting and drawing are her main disciplines. Acrylic, gouache, and pencil are Reid’s favored mediums with surfaces of paper, canvas, and printed fabric. She lives in Dayton, OH with her husband, daughter and a large collection of fabric.
