Heather Cannistraci | Pyrographer & Painter
Heather Cannistraci is a Vermont based artist using pyrography to create her fine art. Each piece is hand drawn and burned, using her own photographs of local Vermont scenes as reference. The depth and range of sepia tones of her pyrography are created by searing the wood, giving life to her illustrations. Variations in the heat allow for a great range of values and textures. Hints of color enhance the antique hues, creating intimate, timeless Vermont moments. This truly is a family business, as her husband mills the logs and provides the wooden blanks that serve as her canvas and then frames the final pieces. Vermont's back roads and quiet beauty are the landscape of their lives. Each burning strives to capture a moment in New England, deeply known and gladly experienced.
