Why choose Heidi?

She loves all kinds of animals. Heidi thanks her mom and dad for encouraging and supporting her while growing up with cats (indoor & barn cats), dogs (Collies, Springer Spaniels, mixes), horses / ponies (draft & riding: western, show jumping & dressage, pleasure, Pony Club), goats, a cow named Daisy, and more!

Heidi’s sharing too much… a few stories.  “She remembers the feeling of lucky little claws when to her surprise a kitten running across the horses haymow fell straight through the hay door and onto her head! It was a striped tabby less than 1 month.  A lucky little fur ball and an unforgettable moment.”  Her mom’s favorite Heidi story. “We had a Belgian draft horse named King that would protect her from the chickens when she was about 2 years old. He would step between her and everything else including the goats and the dogs.” Her mom’s second favorite Heidi story. “Heidi’s first words were “shut up Huckleberry!!” one of our lovely collie dogs who barked a lot.

Heidi Atanasov’s portrait of Birdie, a 2 month old Otterhound puppy, titled “Moving Day” was juried into a summer show at the Hardy Gallery in Ephraim. It was purchased by one of the judges.
