Interests and Personality

BiographyI lost my hearing at age 6. I have been drawing and painting since then. I recieved a cochlear implant about 3 yrs ago and to hear everything for the 1st time is just so amazing, to own my own cell phone, to listening to music, to hearing my son's voice and all the sounds of nature, it's just amazing. I am a self-taught artist who beleives there is no limit in art and to express yourself in any way you wish regardless of what others think. Creating art is my passion and my escape.
InterestsI am willing to try anything at least once. Here are a few of my interests, crocheting, needlepoint, reading, fishing, boating, camping, home improvement, landscaping, rock gardens, sculpting, wood carvings...I also love tattoos...
MusicChris Isaak, who I have met several times, Lacuna Coil which I have also met, The Wallflowers, Cracker(who I have also met), Fastball, Trivium, Cowboy Junkies to name a few.
FilmsPulp Fiction, When a Man Loves a Woman, Natural Born Killers, Texas Chainsaw Masscare, House of 1000 Corpses, 11:14, Go, City Of Angels, Jesus's Son, The Machinist, Monument Ave to name a few...
TelevisionReality shows of any kind, trashy talk shows, just about anything except the cooking channels.
Booksart, art and more art, true crime, Patricia Cornwell to name a few
Heroesno one, everyone is a hero in thier own way. Esecially those who have survived the worst imaginable.

Hi Heidi, congrats on your cochlear implant. I know it must have been a difficult decision to make, but it sounds like it was worth it. I have a brother who lost his hearing at the age of 2. He is partially hearing, but really is stuck in between the hearing and deaf world. I don't know if he is a canidate for an implant or not. But I don't think he plans on getting one. Unfortunately he leaves in a world of depression, all seemingly related to his hearing loss. Anyway, regarding your art. I love your fairies. You have a wonderful talent and found a great way of expressing it.

Beautiful gallery! Love the fairies!!

Hello, Heidi. Your work and personal story are most inspiring to me. I would appreciate if you would visit my new gallery, 'all hands'. I've attempted to show with beauty a means by which the hearing impaired communicate. My story is yours in reverse. I am losing my ability to hear by a progressive condition due to nerve damage. You are inspiring me. Best wishes, RObbie.

Love your creations of art. Very interesting!

Beautiful work. I would imagine your challenges in life have really made a difference in your work. (As it does with all of us), but not being able to hear until 3years ago. I'm so happy for you.
