Heather Rippert

Heather Rippert, fine artist, 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. She is one of 10 selected, out of forty seven applicants, for the Creative Pinellas Emerging Artist Grant.
