Heidi McDowell

"I paint expansive landscapes which unapologetically celebrate the transformations brought about by time and the elements. My paintings depict a heightened sense of realism using an economy of means. Rough painterly marks suggesting layer upon layer of texture combine with precisely rendered sunlight to define both architectural form and emotional tone. It is this juxtaposition of the specific and the general which leaves space for the viewer’s own experience and memory to flesh out the painting’s narrative."

heidi mcdowell was born in texas in 1974 and lives and works in san francisco, california.

1997 bachelor of arts in architecture and art cum laude from rice university, houston, texas.
