Brett Heidi of Olds, Alberta, Canada is a contemporary painter of North American wildlife & western themes.

Coming from a family immersed in art, she had early exposure to painting, sketching and the study of colour and light.  As a youth she participated in local and international art contests, eventually taking on custom people and pet portraits as well as book illustrations.

Early adulthood found her employed in office admin and production scheduling, however she usually had art requests happening on the side. In time she switched to working remotely and part-time doing different occupations in order to travel more and support her creative business.  She's now solely working creatively.

Growing up in a quaint farming community,  Brett developed respect for animals, appreciation for a simple life, and an awe for nature's unchanging beauty.  She and her husband continue to soak in the vistas that Alberta is abundant in.  The incredible view of the Rocky Mountains that are preceded by farm fields and rolling foothills, the charm of their neighboring city Calgary with the unique skyline back dropped by the Rockies and hosts the winding Bow River and just an hour west is a mountainous oasis, Banff National Park where she finds inspiration for her forest animal pieces and mountain scenes. Having had the opportunity to live in Mexico for 6 years and absorb some it's culture and colour has also added to her perspectives.

Since 2014 Brett Heidi has developed an individual style that has been by identified by it's loose large brushstrokes and the use of undermixed luminous colour.     

"Art is music to the eye, life’s beauty put on canvas tell a story and evoke emotion"
