FORCES OF NATURE
Each artist has uniquely interpreted their vision and love for the natural creations that surround them and inspires their creativity.
Vange Logan is a local resident of the East Bay who studied Interior Design in San Jose and Architecture in Chicago. She took a painting class in college, but did not continue painting until years later when life grew dim. Painting was a way to ease emotional pain after losing a loved one. Thereafter, her inspiration in painting became emotional abstractions, thoughts of heaven, biblical descriptions, dreams, her faith in God and the impact of it upon her life.
When Heidi was five years old her mother noticed Heidi’s talent for art based on the art projects she brought home from kindergarten. Heidi’s mother put her in private art lessons starting at age 5 when they lived in Rochester, New York. Also, when Heidi was very young she would draw and paint pictures of flowers, horses and animals and go around the neighborhood and sell them for $.25-$.50 with her cousin Sandy.
At the age of seven, Heidi’s family moved to Texas, to a little farming community called Parker, about an hour east of Dallas. Heidi‘s mother continued her in private art lessons for many years. When in Texas, during the second grade, Heidi entered one of her pieces of artwork she had created up in Rochester at the age of six and won first place for her class and grand prize for her whole school!
Heidi grew up with horses, it was her mother’s dream that her two daughters would grow up riding horses. She first had a little pony called Midnight, then a black and white paint mare named Bonnie and her next horse was a quarter horse mare called Rosie, aka, “Parkers Red Rose”, by Parker’s D Bar.
Heidi continued drawing & painting through the years and in her tender teenage years, her dream was to be an equine artist .
After getting a drivers license, Heidi pursued other interests for a quite a long time and it wasn’t until her 50’s, that she picked up a brush again. Coming back to art was like coming home again. Heidi now dedicates most of her time to her artwork now and continues to work with and love horses. She has a Riding program called, A Horse Experience, giving lessons to children and adults as well as training horses.
In 2016, Heidi discovered the enormous healing properties of essential oils and combined frankincense and myrrh into a biblical blend and created her own label called, A Heaven Scent.
