Heidi K. Brandow is a painter and illustrator whose work is commonly filled with whimsical characters and monsters that are often combined with words of poetry, stories and personal reflections.  Hailing from a long line of Native Hawaiian singers, musicians and dancers on her mother's side and Dineh storytellers and medicine people on her father's side, she finds that her pursuit of an artistic career came natural.

Drawing her inspiration from everyday life, Heidi has actively explored issues of immigration, cultural identity, and sustainability through her art.  She is also examining and personally redefining commonly accepted definitions of "Native Art" through her work.  The mother of two young boys, Heidi is also a New Media Art major at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM.
