HEIDI GEIST (die GEIST).
"THE ART I PRODUCE IS A MERE STEP IN AN ENDLESS JOURNEY, AND I AM JUST A VEHICLE FOR THE PROCESS." -Me
I have lived all over the US, mostly out west, currently I am gracing the East coast with my two teenage daughters. I've got an insatiable hunger for new adventures and exploration...travel, hiking, playing music, dabbling in various creative opportunities...mostly, I seek to break boxes and keep a free flowing stream of consciousness.
I started my creative career selling handmade jewelry at craft fairs, not really considering the potential a few blank canvases and tubes of cheap acrylic paint could bring. As soon as I began painting, it became an obsession (therapy). I wasn't making masterpieces, by any stretch, but I sure was producing a LOT!
It truly takes a lot of drive and passion to build a career on something so free and limitless. Art is my path to transcending all the human bindings..if even for just the duration of the creating process...but I am determined to use it to elevate both myself and my audience. I hope to pioneer new ideas with my creative potential.
My current focus is very centered on the craft beer industry, with can labels, logos, and various other collaborative work.
