Artist’s Bio
 
           Ginna Heiden is an artist in Silver City, NM, best known for colorful, organic abstract paintings in oil or acrylic.  As her teaching career was winding down, she enrolled in art classes at UNM focusing on jewelry.  After moving to Silver City, she discovered her true passion in painting.  She studied oil painting with a local landscape artist, and then ready for more rigorous and expanding coursework, she began taking painting classes at WNMU with professor John Abbott.  She is inspired by a variety of past abstract artists including Paul Klee, Willem de Kooning, and Georgia O’keefe, as well as current abstract artists, Kyle Staver, Steve Dibenedetto  and Katherine Bradford, among others.
