Heather McFarlin

Sausalito-based artist Heather McFarlin walks around with eyes, ears, and senses open, letting the impressions and imprints of her surroundings wash over and through her, and eventually end up on the expressive playing field of her canvas.

Finding the most interest in the blending of vibrant beauty with imperfection and vulnerability, McFarlin takes viewers into a realm that is a bit off-kilter and out of perspective. Often the surreal juxtaposition of subjects, shapes, or energetic marks are reminiscent of a dreamstate, fairytale, or rearranged reality. Her colorful paintings are akin to storytelling or narration, only each viewer will certainly have a different interpretation. Each piece is rich with symbolism, color, movement, and tonality.

FUN FACT
My favorite art teacher in college once said, "If you aren't having fun, you aren't learning anything." I have used this as my motto ever since.
