Heidi Bradbury is principally a watercolorist but has a substantial background in other media such as oils, acrylics, and color pencils. Her Yosemite art was exhibited and sold at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park. She is an equestrian and beginning to paint reined cow and cutting horses, the models for which she also rides. Her educational background is in art with a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art and a Master’s in Education. Her Master’s Thesis is titled “The Value of Art in the Elementary Classroom.” As a teacher, with multi-subject and studio art credentials, she integrated art in the classroom providing a hands on approach to learning, encouraging enthusiasm and creative thinking. Heidi Bradbury’s detailed paintings of Yosemite National Park and the flowers of the Ojai Valley have been praised as “virtual photographs.” Heidi lives in Ojai on the Hang ‘em High Ranch with her husband, former district attorney Mike Bradbury and their three children.
