Heather is an abstract artist who specializes in textural paintings, as well as abstract landscapes. Her southern country roots inspire her to paint tree lined rolling hills, and her love of sculptural objects and natural textures inspires her to create textured paintings with form. She’s particularly drawn to the juxtaposition of traditional and primitive decor paired with modern artwork. In any art she creates her goal is to evoke great emotion and curiosity in the viewer. Essian creates art that will take the collectors on a journey; one that tells a story both in the marks created, and the painting's inspiration.
Her artwork has been collected privately and publicly all across the U.S. Her work has been featured in several print and online publications, as well as several home design TV shows. She resides in Fort Worth TX with her husband, Jim, three little girls, Harper, Hollis, and Hadden, and their Pyredoodle dog, Bo.
