Working primarily in oils to create ethereal and kaleidoscopic images, Abby Heller-Burnham, a native New Yorker, is currently an active member of the vibrant artist community of Philadelphia.  She attended the renowned Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and in addition to her original works, she is often commissioned to produce portraits.  The complexity of human facial expression is a central theme in her work. Heller-Burnham's paintings delve into the nebulous psychology of the unconscious mind while maintaining clarity of vision.  Colorful geometric patterns and aurora borealis-like atmospheric effects highlight the intricacy of her portraiture.
