Heather Rohde

“For as long as I can remember, art has been an important part of who I am. It’s my way of celebrating my love for life and sharing it with others!”

Rohde is an accomplished horsewoman who has owned, trained, and shown several breeds. Often compared to masters C.W. Anderson (1891-1971) and George Ford Morris (1873-1960) yet with a distinctive style all her own, she is regarded as a leader in the equine art genre.

Rohde’s paintings have been shown at many important equine events including the Wyoming Governor’s Invitational Wild Horse Art Show and Sale, the Art of the Horse national juried exhibition in Gladstone, New Jersey, and a Belmont Park Racetrack charity fundraiser at Saratoga Springs, New York.

Versatile in oils, pastels, mixed media, and monochrome, Rohde’s colorful paintings are usually described as “realistic” or “figurative”. “My oils and pastels tend to have impressionistic elements,” she points out. “Artistic influences include Monet and Renoir as well as Delacroix; however, my greatest influence is Nature itself.” Her artistic repertoire encompasses landscapes and still lifes as well as animals, wildlife, and western scenes.
