Rockport artist Leslie Heffron considers herself a large scale colorist and her paintings reflect her love for bold colors and shapes. Since COVID slowed everything down, the artist has spent a good deal of time close to home in Pigeon Cove where she takes daily walks to the harbor in her neighborhood. There she observes the activity on both the wharf and water, takes photos, and uses the images to create paintings, drawings, and videos back in her studio. “Pigeon Cove Harbor is a magical place with beautiful light and color... truly a painter’s paradise,” said Ms. Heffron.

The artist holds a diploma in studio art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and both a teaching certificate and Master’s Degree in Art Education from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. Ms. Heffron is a member of the Rocky Neck Art Colony, the Rockport Art Association Experimental Group, and an associate member of the North Shore Art Association. She has exhibited her work at the White House, Allentown Art Museum, Kutztown University, Muhlenberg College, and galleries throughout the United States.
