Hello! My name is Becca Heavrin.
I'm the artist and owner of Fire of the Heart Gallery located at the historic Greenbank Farm on Whidbey Island in Washington state.
The gallery is a retail and studio space for my work which includes painting, mixed media artwork, natural material sculptures and hand made gifts. My large paintings are vibrantly colorful and have calming, meditative compositions. They reflect a process of improvisational painting. I work with what's on the canvas as it evolves to completion. I look at what the piece needs, in the moment, which creates an opening to what the piece will become. I keep adding marks, colors, and layers until I know the painting is done and ready to hang on the wall.
I work in many mediums. It feeds and replenishes my creative spirit, which allows me to come back to my larger works with a fresh eye. I like making beautiful things, no matter what material I'm creating with. I create items that bring joy and reflect an alive and engaged life. I hope to inspire imagination and wonder through art.
If you are in the area, stop by and say hello!
