about the artist

Heike
Hellmann-Brown

I grew up near Cologne/Germany. Over the years I have lived in exotic places such as Morocco and Egypt, and explored lifestyles in Greece and Australia, before I relocated to the US.

This international upbringing in conjunction with my passion for traveling heavily influences and nurtures my creative side.

Background

Writing has been my first love. A literature translator and book editor by trade, my work is published in Europe, the U.S., and in Africa – including more than 50 artist interviews for several North American magazines.

Philosophy

As a writer I always strive to find the perfect flow of words to keep the reader engaged. The same principle applies to my artistic creations. The conflux of colors creates a story in its own – capturing attention, mesmerizing the observer, and impacting the soul while leaving a powerful and long-lasting impression.

It runs in the family

The greatest inspiration remains my immensely gifted husband Mike Brown, one of the nation’s leading wildlife artists. Mike loves nature, which you can see in every brushstroke. An internationally recognized Conservation Stamp Artist, Mike has received numerous awards for his realistic depictions of wildlife and the beauty of nature.

Among many other accolades Mike was named “Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Artist  of the Year” seven times and has designed several State Conservation Stamps for the Department of Natural Resources.

My distinctive artwork that blends my “Southern Flair & European Style” is displayed in various galleries and exhibits. On a regular basis I conduct Art Marketing workshops; I am a business coach, a web-designer, and a public speaker.
