Lily sold!

The Lily watercolor drawing on my Etsy shop was just sold to a wonderful buyer! It is great to see my work find a good home.

lilyI am planning on creating some more art nouveau flower drawings since that seems to be a popular subject. Any thoughts on other work would be appreciated!

Official Press Release

Suspended Flux: Multiculturalism in Singapore

by Heidi Celeghin (Brazil)
As a Brazilian who grew up in an international environment, now living in the United States, and traveling around the world, artist Heidi Celeghin is constantly experiencing new cultures and exploring new definitions of identity. She is fascinated with both how people assimilate and how they remain connected to their roots. It is challenging to grow up between cultures but it also provides one with a wonderful opportunity to bridge gaps and begin dialogues. Multiculturalism is powerful – it can dissolve barriers and destroy fears of the unknown Other. Her show explores Singapore’s internationalism through a combination of new media portraiture and installation. Heidi Celeghin is simultaneously capturing the diverse people who live in Singapore and the architectural structure alternately surrounding/defining/uniting them.  In this exhibition, there will be 10 oil paint and digital painting on canvases and 10 digital paintings on archival paper featured.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Heidi Celeghin is a Brazilian artist currently teaching at the Glassell Junior School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She divides her time between Houston and Manhattan, primarily working in oil, graphite, and ink. Her artwork has been shown twice in Houston’s Reliant Center, twice in Ithaca’s Johnson Museum of Art, the Norma R. Ory Gallery of the MFAH, and other notable locations. Her artwork is in private collections in Houston, Manhattan, and Barcelona. She studied in Cornell University and pursued additional artistic studies in The School of Visual Arts (New York) and the Angel Academy of Art in Florence.
