About Heather Calderon




Heather Calderón is a self taught artist, wife and mother of two, currently working and running her own art business celebrating skeletons as her main subject. Born in 1977 in Milford, DE, with parents Victor and Pamela Padilla and two older sisters, the family relocated to Longmont CO, where she spent a beautiful childhood. Heather was exposed to the arts at a very young age. She began playing the piano by ear at age 2 on an old upright player piano that was a gift from grandparents from Albuquerque, New Mexico. She began studying classical piano at age 4 to age 7 with Mrs. Shultz, mother and teacher of son, Robert Shultz, professional classical pianist of San Francisco. In addition to piano, she studied cello and violin through Middle school and High School. She also had an abundance of sketchbooks, pencils, paints and other art supplies all through out the years. She won many awards for her art pieces in local school art shows and fairs and was placed in advanced music and art classes. Having both musical and artistic capabilities, around age 16, Heather turned more her focus on her art, feeling it was more her stronger talent and passion.
At age 19 she was married and later had two children, a daughter and a son. Art took the back stage for a while during these years of raising children with sporadic art projects as gifts for family. It was not until 2001 when she was hired as a copy painter, copying other artists’ designs on needlepoint canvas, that her artist dream was awakened. It was this job that gave her complete understanding of working in acrylic paints. She took this new knowledge of painting and began creating her own needlepoint designs, becoming a designer and later creating her own paintings. Her earlier pieces were inspired mostly by her children and the fantasy world. Later as her style and imagination grew, she began exploring other subjects. She had always had a fondness for skeletons from a child hood experience of having her head x rayed and found that putting a skeleton somewhere in a piece, just made it complete and her own. It just seemed suiting. And with that, she grew into making her skeletons the main focal point for many of her paintings.
Today Heather Calderón is 35 and has recently relocated with her children (now teenagers) to Hollywood Florida after spending over 30 yrs living in Colorado. She is happily remarried and also the step mother of two. She currently runs her own art business HCalderón, selling originals as well as prints t-shirts and other household items online. Her fan base is growing daily. Recently she has been labeled as a ‘Day of the Dead’ artist and is very proud her skeletons are a part of this new art phenomenon. She still plays the piano and even sings from time to time.
