About Me

The curtains have opened and Lights and Darks has finally found a spot in cyberspace. My name
is Heather Herindeen, and I am the artist behind the pieces you see at Lights and Darks. Creating art has
been a part of me for my entire life. I can’t remember a time in my life I wasn’t doing art. As life has it, I
have had ebbs and flows of different interests and hobbies throughout my journey. However, the one
thing that I always return home to is artwork.
Art has timelessness to it. It is an escape portal to anywhere you want to go. Art is an outward
expression of the inner workings of the artist’s mind. Mine is filled with lots of value contrasts, edgy and
playful themes, and a variety of mediums in which to build from.
I have a variety of subject matters that I draw from. My most popular request is portrait
drawings. I offer customized pieces in either black and white or color. Your piece can feature humans,
pets, or anything else you can dream up! I am open to doing a re-creation of any image or photo you
have (as long as you confirm permission from the owner of the image). To make original artworks, I will
draw inspiration from various references, create a base and put a Lights and Darks lens on it. As I
progress in my artistic career, I am working towards making more original pieces with design elements
that pull primarily from my own head.
I am so thankful to have the opportunity to share my creations with you. For details on how to
score your own custom artwork, head over to the “Color Pieces” or “Black and White Pieces” tabs for
further details. Stay tuned for exciting updates on when the Shop will go live with original artworks and
prints for sale!
Stay Creative,
Heather Herindeen
