Distinction Gallery Presents: Pigments of Imagination
All new works by Heather McKey and Virginie Mazereau
About the artists:
Heather McKey is a traditional acrylic painter, blending her lifelong love of birds with unexpected and striking features.Each of Heather’s paintings begin on a raw wood panel, the individual grain pattern inspiring the design composition of the plants, water, sky, and land. Her admiration of Martin Johnson Heade and James Audubon continue to influence her vision through every painting, as well as her deep love of The Hudson River School painters.
After a Baccalaureate in Fine Arts and an Interior Designer Degree from ESAG Penninghen in Paris in 1998, my first contract was with an advertising agency to give Malboro Classics flagship stores a total makeover.
A year later, I joined with a lot of pride and motivation L’Oreal, the worldwide group of cosmetics to create artwork at a very intense pace for stands and stores. I rapidly realized that no place was left for what is the most important to me: creativity, imagination and personal accomplishment.
