Heathyr Chenoweth began finger painting at the age of five. Early on her father coined the term “electric impressionism” to describe her painting style. A lover of working with acrylic paint, she hesitates limiting herself to one medium and still likes to paint with her fingers. “I am still a fan of finger painting, though lately, when my painting is finished I add bright colored paint markers which add movement to the pieces.”
A few of Chenoweth’s influences are: Andy Warhol, Saul Bass, Mr. Rogers, and Will Rogers. She also looks through books and art magazine to gain new ideas and finds the library a wonderful place for inspiration.
“Life can be really hard, and I like for my art to bring a ray of hope and something positive. I am constantly learning and evolving and updating my techniques. I like to go on photography sprees and then paint my photographs. I want the world to be as colorful as possible.” Chenoweth also helps bring color to others by teaching art lessons through Canvas Oklahoma and the Tulsa Art Center.
