Heidi Koester

Heidi has always had a great love for animals, insects, and art. To this day, she has an affinity for animals and insects of all sizes, from Narwhals to Dung Beetles. She enjoys exploring this interest in wildlife with her creative process. Attributes that many find disheartening have served as a source of fascination, in both their form and their hidden beauty.

Combining these favorite interests and personal experiences through photography, illustrations, painting, and printmaking has stirred an entirely new level of observation and understanding of these animals and insects. She hopes to share this with others so they too will begin to appreciate animals and insects, if only for the small glimpses of splendor they offer wherever they are found.
