Heather Pallotta has worked as a full time professional artist since 1999. Her company, Studio Eighteen, is an established premier decorative painting, mural and trompe l’oeil source in New York and New Jersey. Building on a wealth of knowledge since studying fine art at New York City’s School of Visual Arts, traveling throughout the country to gain product certifications and study with international masters, Heather has developed her reputation and personal style. Clients and her peers alike recognize Heather for her innate artistic sensibilities and calm personality that can mold designs to the direction of designer, builder, architect and homeowner. Heather has also been featured in multiple design publications and galleries in NYC such as St Mark’s Place, an international exhibit space.
In her work with children’s literature, she uses playful language to nurture and encourage accompanied by her magical illustrations. With her children as her muse she lures you into their world of inspired whimsy in hopes of fostering a realm of fancy free for you to bask in. Heather resides with her husband and two children in Morris County, NJ.
I have written and illustrated two picture book manuscripts in which both ave been published on The Children's Writer's Guild website. As a contributing member I value and appreciate their continued support. My work is also available to view on my blog and my Twitter and Instagram pages.
