Carolyn Heffelfinger

Artist Bio

Having lived in the country for 40 years, Carolyn’s recent move to an historic area in the city of Delaware has added an exciting perspective to her work and subject matter with views of rooftops instead of woods and fields out the windows of her studio.

Carolyn Heffelfinger is a professional oil painter living with her husband and their busy golden retriever, Izzy. She attended Kent State University where she studied Fine Arts and focused primarily on painting and drawing figure. Beyond Kent, she continued her studies with admired instructors and workshops across the country. Working for 7 years as an illustrator’s assistant, she learned discipline and a bit about the business of art.

Carolyn’s paintings have been exhibited nationally at numerous museums and galleries including the Butler Museum of American Art, Columbus Art Museum, and Cincinnati Art Center. She has had the honor of receiving much recognition and awards for her detailed, light-filled landscapes. She is represented by Hayley Gallery and Gallery 22. As Artist-In-Residence at the Arc of the Appalachian, she worked on honing her plein air skills for the 2-week residency.

Carolyn has been a board member of the Delaware Cultural Arts Center and has included in her experience the opening of two art galleries.

In her ever-pursuit to capture light and beauty, her paintings have been inspired by her many travels and treks into the wilderness with her backpack, paints, and countless photos.
