Heather L. Lowe is a permanent artist in Residence at ElementC Studio since 2012. Working from her larger studio in the Black Forest of Colorado and recently spending most of her time painting from the Urban Loft Studio in Park Place, Leawood Kansas; Lowe has grown a significant body of work and created a brilliantly interesting market for her collected cork works. Focusing on her “Living Room Series”, Nautical Works, and producing large Commercial Alchemy Paintings the cork has proved a formidable opponent. Cork is an organic and dynamic backdrop to place paint that weaves itself into the fabric of each piece, devouring color like it’s magic.
Lowe specializes in painting on cork, an organic and dynamic backdrop that weaves itself into the fabric of each piece. She is known for her expressive brushstrokes, vivid palette and infusing her paint with crystalline materials that are sourced from mines from around the globe. Incubated from her years at GIA (Gemological Institute Of America) Santa Monica, CA – Lowe has a love and knowledge for minerals, mines, gemstones, and their historic and energetic significance.
