Formerly known for her works in oil and pastel, Ms. Heller now works primarily in the medium of “Fiber Collage”. In re-weaving the fabric of her experience, Ms Heller expresses her artistic responses to landscape motifs and the human figure through fiber.
Ms Heller has exhibited widely in Westchester, NY and Manhattan. In Westchester, her works can be seen at the Mamaroneck Artists’ Guild gallery, and at the Jain Gallery in Manhattan. Other exhibits include “Lever House” in Manhattan, the Pen and Brush Invitational in Manhattan, New Haven Paint and Clay Club, Long Island University, and Iona College.
Ms. Heller’s works are included in the collections of IBM and EXXON and many private collectors

Art is a reflection of the artist’s inner and outer experiences as they absorb and react to their environment. Growing up in Argentina exposed me to the exotic colors and rhythms of the gypsy culture, the sinuous counterpoint of Tango, and the luminous colors of Spanish toreador costumes. Wide open spaces of the “Pampas”, endless unexploited sea shores, and rugged Andean mountains, formed part of my early environment. Now, winters in Florida expand my experience with the lines and colors of the sub-tropics. From an historical point of view, the French Impressionists influenced the way I view the natural environment; and the works of Degas influenced the way I represent the human figure.
