Heidi Floren Gallery

Wherever you go, there you are. I just love that one!

I was raised around a lot of art on my Mother's side and music on my Father's side. My love of those things continue on in my life.

I graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree concentrating in Fashion Design, and proceeded to work in that industry for 15 years. Patternmaker, production manager, fashion shows, instructor and hand embellished custom wedding gowns.

After taking an oil painting class with Roberto Quintana, I was introduced to painting and that was it. Fortunate to work with Mark Wood at the Fine Artist Factory in Pasadena which introduced me into the world of art through the classes, shows, studio members and art clubs that came through.

So, here I am now ... and it is much better....

Heidi - what wonderful gifts created by paint brush and my very good friend. The softness mixed with vibrant color touch the soul and take me back to a simpler time - whenever that might have existed. Keep up the wonderful work, they are amazing.

Heidi - this is a beautiful gallery. You are an artist in the truest sense of that word. Your positive/optimistic outlook on life has always been an inspiration to me as we grew up together. I look forward to watching you continue to grow in this newest life's phase....with love from your cousin, Karen

Heidi,

Wow! I didn't realize how prolific your art was. What I did know after I saw some of your paintings, was what a wonderful artist you are! The website is also beautifully done and the pictures look like they are lit from within. Kind of like you.

Your neighbor and friend,

Amy

Heidi,
My name is Karen Zappettini, I'm the Interior Designer that helped Tom and Robin on their home. Robin recently showed my the painting you did of the two of you as kids and I was so impressed. I may have a commission for you if there is a way I can show my client a picture of the photo as well as the painting.. Do you have a copy ?? Let me know... Thanks

A kind of eerie/serendipitous moment this evening! Was online searching for a local (Richmond, Va) gallery and for some reason your site popped up; not so unusual, in and of itself, but in front of me, at the time, on the TV, was a cute little blond girl named Heidi, accompanying her daddy, Myron, as he played 'The Happy Wanderer!'

Loved your daddy and love your works in oil!

Happy Holidays!

Chuck Adams

Optimist Creed

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. to look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, so work only for the best and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, to strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
