From Dancer to Visual Artist

She studied fine arts at the Corcoran College of Art and Design and the Alexandria Art league. She co-founded Les Artists Locale, Plein Air Painters of Alexandria. Her works have won several awards and can be seen on exhibit in DC, Maryland and recently at the National Institute of Health, and the Art Leagues Target Gallery among others. Heiser’s paintings are sold across the country and have been gifted in support of various charities.
