About

Heather W, Ernst is an abstract expressionist and abstract landscape painter.  She graduated with a B. of Architectural Studies and a Minor in Fine Arts from Skidmore College in conjunction with The Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York City.  After her Masters of Architecture Degree from U. of Colorado in Denver, she practiced architecture in high end residential, medical and retail projects to $12M for approximately 25 years.

"Come and look closer. Want to feel the texture? To see what clash of colors made you feel exuberant, energized, or focused? As tranquil as air, or as encumbered as a bubble in riptide? From a different distance, a different angle? If any brushstroke or scrape of the palette knife awakens the emotional part of your mind; the place where you visualize no tangible object you’ve ever known, that is enough".

She has exhibited in solo and group exhibits throughout Colorado and Washington state.  Heather’s work is found with private clients throughout the United States, U.K., Germany and New Zealand. She keeps her Studio 211 on 1120 Pacific Avenue in Tacoma.
