“My imagination is endless and the more creativity I use, the more I have infinite creativity.
I evoke my creative instinct and revel between the conscious and unconscious, unconstrained by society’s conventions. Nothing is impossible. “
Artist statement: Being an artist is my truth and spreading a positive message where i can is my purpose. I feel that its my responsibility to create art. I also teach the therapeutic value of creating art through my art classes. Thankfully I earn a living doing what I love to do. I hope you enjoy absorbing my art as much as i do creating it.
I am incredibly grateful.

“Art By Heidi Lee” Adults and children art classes (5 years)
Heidi Lee Warta is of European descent & lives in the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney.
Beginning her artistic journey at a young age Heidi went on to complete a 2 year Graphic Design Course at Randwick TAFE, Sydney Australia in her late teens.
She also studied life drawing, technical drawing, colour, form and pottery for several years after.
For the next four years Heidi Lee continued working as an artist in a printing firm. Heidi then traveled for many years living a life rich with adventure, soul searching and experience. Heidi acquired skills from artist courses where she learned a wide variety of painting methods and mediums.
Heidi Lee’s work is passionate and vibrant. She endeavors to capture a life force and energy. The use of vivid colour and bold textures blended together gives her work a unique style, depth and a sense of heart felt emotion where she focuses on rich palettes and techniques.
“The instinctual essence of who i am is channelled, filtered and revealed through my art, my visual language”
In 2012 Heidi Lee was living in Indonesia where she volunteered her time and materials and painted with the beautiful children at the YPAC Disabled Orphanage over a whopping 18 week period. The paintings Heidi and the children completed were auctioned for $10,000. Over $20,000AUD for the YPAC Orphanage was raised in total. This experience was a profound turning point in Heidi’s life.
Having had several solo exhibitions and several pieces hung and sold successfully in a mix of eclectic exhibitions, boutiques & cafes throughout Sydney and internationally including Thailand, California, Los Angeles and Bali, Heidi Lee is certainly ready to extend her career as an emerging artist throughout the rest of the world.
Heidi is a full time artist creating medium to high end commission pieces for clients all over Sydney and is currently working for Respite Services teaching art to carer’s of children with schizophrenia and dual diagnosis. Heidi is currently teaching art to adults on Wednesdays 7pm to 9pm and Fridays 10am to 12pm from her studio in Collaroy Plateau.
Heidi works many layers to give depth and texture infusing wonderment, confusion and element of magic leaving the viewer asking… “How did you do that?” Favorite methods used are mixed media including fabric, plastic, metal, cardboard, glue, impasto, acrylic, oil, pigment, sand, oil, house paints wax, shellac, fire and sweat.
