Heather Keith Freeman has been painting ever since she was old enough to hold a brush, on every available surface. Her work explores the anthromorphization of abstract concepts with vivid use of light and shadow, often combined with text to make profound statements about the hidden qualities of our culture. Social justice in all its manifestations is very important to her work, from the combating of racism and sexism to disability rights and size acceptance. She seeks to communicate that which lives in the space between word and image by the use of both in tandem, and the challenging of subconscious stereotypes and assumptions.
Ms. Freeman lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She keeps a blog about the intersection between art and social justice activism at http://www.fireseastudios.com/livingartist/.
