Heidi will be presenting on her photography travels around Washington state, where she has been photographing our state parks.

Heidi has been surrounded by art her entire life, with a photographer father and a painter mother. They spent every vacation traveling to National Parks in the US & Canada to capture their beauty. She grew up with the understanding that the outdoors and art go together naturally. Heidi has since shared this understanding through classes offered at The Mountaineers and in private workshops.

Tickets will be on sale December 2019.
