"I grew up in Louisiana,” Heide Presse says, “and over the years have taken many trips up and down the ‘River Road,’ exploring old plantations along the Mississippi. 'Dressed in Ribbons Fair' was inspired by a stroll under a grove of centuries-old live oaks on one of those plantations. I love this piece because the atmosphere seems to border on fantasy, but everything in it is real or at least within reach of reality. In fact the plantation trees were actually larger than I’ve presented them here . . . but at the size and dimensions they are now, they offer just the right dreamlike quality.”

Heide Presse
Through the use of dramatic lighting and rich color, the images that Heide paints weave a story of the places and people that are most important to her. Sprinkled throughout these images are the objects that she enjoys collecting. There is something about the character of older things that engages her imagination. She loves exploring antique markets and is constantly on the lookout for interesting architecture, old-fashioned gardens and vintage clothing pieces. Heide is always finding the quiet beauty in life.
"When people view my work, I'd like them to be reminded of the blessings that God has given us. Whether it is a breathtaking landscape, or a child holding a simple flower... we all should slow down and take notice of our surroundings and enjoy the small moments in our lives, because they pass all too quickly."
Heide is married with a young son and lives in Florida. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and has worked as a commercial artist. Her paintings have been juried into the Arts for the Parks Top 100, where she has won the Region I, Founders' Favorite, Collectors' Choice and San Antonio Missions National Park awards. Her work has been shown in the National and American Watercolor Societies and she has been featured in numerous publications, having been named Artist to Watch by US Art and Wildlife Art magazines.
