Thought it was just about time to show my newest art projects and perhaps a look into what the names are and perhaps a little backstory.

1.  “Gypsy Rose”  My first canvas job. I’m submitting this work for a juried art competition here in the Dow Library in Midland, MI for the Michigan Artist Guild.

2.  “Abstraction”  Went on a website that showed abstraction plus a lot more realism…if my work gets too abstract, people don’t the clues as to what they are.  Nude woman some faces *check

3.  “Hi Jack”  The project was submitted for the new exhibit “Piece by Piece” at the gallery here in Midland, MI for Creative 360. The piece of art is both silly and serious in my mind. Would love to hear what people “think” what is going on.  I am leaning on the topic of International Sex Trade (I know my art mind can be pretty out there)

4.  “Peacocky”  I LOVE peacock feathers! I wanted to use some bright colors and a real object.

5.  “Zipper”  Hmmm…girls eye is being zipped off her face.

6.  “Do Evil or Not”  This two piece canvas set was sold at Michaels for like three dollars!  Just drew out composition in an hour and went crazy with a pencil.  Pretty and evil go hand in hand.

7.  “Periodical”  This is my mind when I think in both art world and science world…above is the periodic table with forms of abstract acrylic.

8.  “Squirrel Nibble”  What if I was close to a squirrel..she wouldn’t be so friendly…I heard they bite people here in Michigan…WHAT! Well this is pretend but this is what I would do.

9.  “Musical Notess” and “Face Plant”  Made for the fundraiser for Disability Network

10.  “Poppy” and “Blossom”  I drew this series of women from different states with the flowers of their state

Ahhhh…now I can breathe

Any feedback would make me smile!  Or even snort for that matter.

Oceans of Love,

On the first day of my job, I walk into a production studio to hand in paperwork. A young gentleman stands up to shake my hand when I walk into the room. "Wow! You are tall." he states. I point to my heels of my shoes. "Wow! You are short." Laughter lights up the room. Matt Damon San Francisco Clear Channel Radio With an electric soul of an artist, Heather Deogracia, has an interesting personality that uses her manic branches of her mind to express her sense of humor, expand the creative hourly illustration addiction and continually read big books about artistic principles, elements and glorious techniques to feed her intellectual capabilities. “With a splash of color and chemicals in my brain, I have to clean it out once a day or it must flash flood my other organs.” Heather Deogracia Proud to start staging a background of her latest achievements, Heather was on the front page Sunday Feature in the Midland Daily News on Oct. 19, 2016 and is an Award-Winning Fine Artist for the state-wide competition Legacy Trust Award Collection for the past three years in a row. She displayed in over 30 exhibits and fundraisers in the tri-city area over the past four years. She has earned a 2017 Leadership of Bay County Achievement Award from Studio 23 and a Midland County Art Letourneau Award for "Collaboration and Creativity in Community Support".

Currently, she has been an art instructor for workshops for the past year for Creative 360, teaching private art lessons and writing a graphic novel soon to complete by the beginning of 2018 named Heather Hurts Inside: Illustrations of a Broken Human. The new true story is about a suicidal bipolar woman that is prescribed Ritalin at the age of 38 and she reverts back to her glory days of her life. The truth is that no one knows the past is killing her mind.

One thought on “Brand New Smack-a-roo Art for February *My birthday is on the 12th

  1. So, I have an art blog, too now! Yay! Also, I’m freaking out because the entries for “Piece By Piece” shown here were amongst my favorites I peeked at in the gallery and it’s so cool to find out YOU are the artist! Definitely the most creative, out of the box submissions. You rock.
