Heidi Lingamfelter Almosara has received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas Christian University and a Master of Arts as well as a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Dallas. Her concentration has primarily been in Printmaking with special interest also in Painting and Photography. Her style ranges from sublime abstractions within nature to realistic cityscapes. She does not limit herself to one theme and/or process but enjoys exploring various types of art forms. However, a sense of place tends to be a recurring theme in her art.
“I believe that a large part of what we think about culture will be influenced by our own personal experiences. As human sight is our primary sense, we use images to identify and understand the world around us, which is why photography is a main component during the early stages of my work. Using my own photographs to construct the framework for my art allows me the ability to document the accuracy of an experience and manipulate one as well.”
Heidi has taught several courses in academia as a full-time university professor and currently teaches online courses. She is an international and national exhibiting artist with prints exhibited and collected in, but not limited to, Japan, Peru, New Zealand, Finland, Taiwan, Guatemala, Hawaii, and Alaska.
Heidi is also an adrenaline-seeking adventuress who enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and rock climbing as well as anything involving heights. Fun fact: she is an enthusiastic fan of English bulldogs. Her bulldog is named Pescia, also featured on this page.
