Hetty Estes is an artist and Fine Art Professor. Studio art trained in multiple media. She began with a BFA in Interior Design and finished with an MFA in Studio Art. This unique combination guides her abilities with spacial thinking and design.
Hetty's imagination and love of nature are the inspiration behind many of her works. Growing up in the Netherlands she traveled to beautiful places such as the Swiss Alps with her family; instilling in her a love of vast landscapes and majestic scenery while spending time with the important people in her life.
With a natural tendency toward wanderlust, she uses power of visual suggestion to encourage creativity and build imagination; wanting to share her unique view of the world with others.
These works are a combination of watercolor, soft pastel and acrylic paintings. Using color harmonies for emotional strength and balance, high contrast for interest and focus, flexible points of view, and complexity tempered with simplicity; these art works spark the imagination.
