Truth in form lends essence to her wild creatures and lofty scenery, inviting the viewer into a striking, yet peaceful world.
Whether drawn to flight with a flock of geese or lured to stroll a country path, art lovers will find themselves transported to a softer place in time. Whether doing a landscape, floral scene or birds, working with pastels, oils or watercolor, Juanita is a true artist who draws you into the very world she is creating.
Heller was born and raised in the Woodhawk Valley of the Missouri River Breaks area, 26 miles northeast of Winifred, Montana. "I think the remoteness of the area and the fact that only my family and three others lived in the valley, led to my early keen awareness of the beauty of the land and its animals," she said. Heller teaches art and feels that, "When the Lord gives you talents, you need to show and share." While her oils offer rich land scapes, her colored pencil paintings present a work so detailed, it comes to life. She creates meticulous colored pencils birds and animals. Her oils depict the rugged beauty of the Missouri River badlands and often times include the animals that live there.
