Enriched Bread Artists

Member's bio: Heidi Conrod

Heidi Conrod was born in Montreal in 1970. She completed her BSc in Biology in 1994 at the University of Ottawa. She studied painting and printmaking at the Ottawa School of art and at the University of Ottawa. Heidi has exhibited her work at galleries in Gatineau, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Halifax and Vancouver. Her work can be found in numerous private and public collections.

Heidi's work ranges from abstracted landscapes, to intimate and ethereal portraits, drawing, and printmaking. The subject of her work is found as much in their technique as in the depicted images. As she paints, ideas, thoughts impressions are built up and then broken down. Working primarily in oils, alternating layers of paint, glaze and wax, adding and subtracting, allowing for the unpredictable qualities of the medium to create an alchemic tension where deeper levels of meaning are slowly revealed. Her work is intuitive and compassionate. The scenes she paints do not exist per se. Instead they are created from various sights the artist has observed and felt, distilled and absorbed. Her impressions are abstractions of nature and the human condition. Heidi Conrod has developed a unique way of examining the world around her and extracting a poetic beauty from her observations.
