Colored Pencil artist Heather A. Mitchell grew up in Hawaii, spent several years in California, and then moved to the Gulf Coast. Living most of her life near the water, she appreciates the beauty of the natural environment of her Florida home. She draws much of her inspiration from the local wildlife. As an animal lover, drawing pet portraits comes naturally. Heather accepts private commissions. Contact her directly at HeatherMitchellDraws@yahoo.com for information.
All the work you see here is meticulously drawn with colored pencils. Using professional grade, oil-based pencils on archival surfaces, Heather achieves realistic effects that are often mistaken for paintings or photographs. She has won several local and regional awards for her drawings, exhibits her work regionally, and also exhibits in outdoor shows. Heather supports wildlife rescue groups through her artwork.
