“Heidi has painted two events for our organization over the past 14 months, including our launch event at the Orlando Museum of Art and our fundraiser for the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute. Heidi’s renditions of the events live were enjoyed by our guests and were the conversations of the evening. Heidi’s warm and cordial personality added to the evening events. The launch event painting hangs in my home today and the other painting was auctioned off to benefit the Florida Hospital Foundation and Cancer Institute.

“If the opportunity occurs for us to be able to call on Heidi again at a future event, I will not hesitate to contact you immediately. We would love to have her back again.”

“I was extremely excited to win Heidi’s painting at last year’s event, since I was fascinated by the whole experience of her painting the night away. I loved how she not only used her artistic ability to design such a unique piece, but seeing her paint as the night progressed was art itself.”

“As an organization, we were somewhat shocked at the reaction from our event’s attendees! Dozens of people found me during the event to let me know how cool it was to have an artist painting the event. My friends and colleagues won’t stop talking about how cool the concept is!”

“Heidi Schwartz is a gifted artist and our guests truly enjoyed watching her artistic process. The Interpretive Painting was a very unique, intriguing, and popular aspect of our event this year. Because Heidi Schwartz’s muse is the ambiance of the event, it also gave our guests an opportunity to become a part of the artwork itself. They were amazed with the final product and were in a bidding war to take this beautiful one-of-a-kind painting home with them. We have already had numerous requests to bring back Heidi and her Interpretive Painting for next year’s event!”
