ARTIST’S BIO: HEIDI DALEY


Heidi Daley has a lifelong passion for the arts. Growing up in New England her mother painted with oils and father was a musician. Her training started in high school and continued through Berea College where she studied design, drawing, intaglio printmaking, art history, Pre-Columbian and Latin American art history, and sacred space architecture. Moving to the west coast she continued her post-graduate art studies at Monterey Peninsula College.

Starting her undergraduate work Heidi studied art in hopes to become an art teacher. Later, she chose the path to a degree in Community Development to help teach adults literacy skills. Early in 2003, she began to refocus her art career through the experimentation of acrylic painting. She sold her first painting in August 2004 and a month later launched her website www.artbyheidi.com. In 2005, Heidi exhibited at the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia. In 2007, she exhibited with the Fortress of the Arts in Philadelphia and the Montgomery County Guild of Professional Artists at their gallery space in the Inquirer Building in Conshohocken, PA. She has also shown pieces at Moegerle Paints, Inc. in Philadelphia for the past two years.

Having finished her MBA from Penn State in October of 2009, she is redirecting her attention to her art once again. She started an artist’s support group to help encourage artists in their endeavors called Create Community through www.meetup.com. This website can be found at www.meetup.com/pa-artists/.

Her love of nature is evident in many of her works. She believes that "art is the interpretation of the modern world filtered through the reality of the artist. Photography can document the visions of nature, but painting brings it to life."
