Heather Lenefsky paints from life because chasing connection with her subject in paint captures all her attention and holds her curiosity stroke to stroke. Imagining her brush moving over and around the form inspired by what is beautiful seems a limitless potential for discovery. Whether in paint or line, a game at capturing a person’s character or celebrating a subject’s essence is for her engaging in a game with a world that is infinitely fascinating.
Lenefsky now resides in Sydney, Australia after 6 years of living and working as an Entertainment Illustrator in Los Angeles. Her education is a composite of great mentorship, ateliers, and experience gained learning Illustration on the job after moving on from a ten-year career in health care to pursue creativity. She has illustrated for Hollywood studio movie poster clients including feature film, television, and streaming, and was honored to be featured among the New Master’s Academy instructors. Lenefsky’s fine artwork can be found in private collections in Europe, Canada, and across the United States.
