Biography

Heidi Neilson works in drawing, printmaking and book arts with an occasional public project—all with conceptual inclinations. She recently cofounded an artist-run weather station on a studio building rooftop and presented her Queens neighborhood as a gigantic sundial, with a lone skyscraper as the shadow-casting spire. She has participated in residencies at the Lower East Side Printshop, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Kala Art Institute and Women’s Studio Workshop, and has exhibited widely, including at the International Center for Prints New York, the Queens Museum of Art, and The Drawing Center. Her works are in numerous public and private collections. Originally from Oregon, Heidi received an MFA in painting from Pratt Institute, and lives and works in New York.
