Heather Rippert, fine artist, living in Clearwater, Florida, has been painting and drawing from the time she could hold a pencil. Her masterful and sensitive watercolors explore the vast beauty of the natural world emphasizing light and mood. Her life experiences inform her work. Dedicated to an active yoga practice for over twenty years, spiritual growth and development as a way of life are a major force in her creative expression. Walking through life, perpetually seeking the ‘lighted path’ is a theme that can be felt in her paintings. Her work dances between representational and atmospheric abstraction.
Rippert is continually selected for exhibitions like Art Expo NYC and Las Vegas, was nominated Creative Loafing Best Local Visual Artist in Tampa Bay 2017, is a member of the Florida Watercolor Society, The American Watercolor Society, and was featured on Great Day Tampa Bay Live in June 2019 about her Solo Exhibition, ‘Transitions’ at TECO Public Art Gallery.
