Ciara Heatherman graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education from Ithaca College in 2010. She has taught middle and high school visual art for 7 years in Upstate NY. She has now taken the leap to become a full time painter while also parenting her toddler, and traveling with her husband. They are currently in the Hill Country of Texas.
Ciara works in a variety of mediums, but is primarily focused on honing her skills in oil painting. Her paintings are representational, with expressive visible brush strokes. Ciara is deeply inspired by the symbolic implications of her subjects. She has had her work shown in the Roberson Museum of Art, the Broome County Artisan Gallery, and currently at the Pelham Center for the Arts.
