Heather Eck is an American born abroad in Germany. After nearly 17 years in HR, she left to pursue art-making in 2019. Her paintings have been featured in over 20 exhibitions in the U.S. Within her body of work; there is a rich assortment of spiritual topics and issues explored with soul-stirring vulnerability. Each piece studies an underlying interest in the mysteries of the universe, the great unseen and mystical. She examines universal questions of purpose, belonging, and healing. Almost autobiographical, Heather seeks to understand the grander questions and influences that shape and direct her life. Still, her paintings attempt to come to terms with energies we cannot see but are somehow making themselves known in our day-to-day existence.
Heather engages with clients and viewers in deep and meaningful color connecting to the 7 Chakras of the body which are created from messages that she intuits from her spirit guides about the person or space for whom she creates.
I am an artist whose paintings are intended to heal people's spiritual and emotional wounds. My spiritual gift is to intuit emotion and messages through communion with God. Messages appear as colors, symbols, and shapes. Each painting I create is intended for a specific person, whether I get to know them through the commission process or I create a painting that will eventually find them serendipitously. As I paint, I receive and interpret the person and their needs through feelings that become visual messages on the canvas.
My life’s journey has been about recognizing the need to preserve my individuality and is centered around the desire to be joyful and feel spiritually whole. I deeply desire to love people and connect to them through my artwork. My paintings represent the moods and emotions of their unique stories and circumstances. They are meant to divinely heal them through love and remind them of their unique personal strength and the power of transformational healing.
