Hola! Thanks for Stopping BY!
Heidiroo began in 2014 during a very confusing and overwhelming time for me. After I graduated with a BA in English, I was working a part-time retail job while I applied and interviewed for a handful of full time office jobs. I had no idea what I wanted to do. I wasn’t painting as much during this time but I created greeting cards for friends and family. Soon I decided to open an etsy shop. From there I began doing greeting cards and custom portraits. Once I found an office job I paid less attention to my etsy shop and noticed that it was affecting me.
In 2016 I began working in an office with a very difficult environment where I experienced bullying. This is the where I was diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks. I was deeply depressed and began to visit a therapist to treat my anxiety and panic attacks. I remember telling her how much I missed having more time to draw and running my shop. I used art to help me get through the tough moments. Soon after that I began to dedicate time to draw after work. I drew every night between the hours of 8 to 9pm and began posting them on social media. With the help of very supportive family and friends, I began to heal. That fall season I decided I was going to go all in with no plan b. I was going to go for it and see if I could make a living off my art. Fast forward to today, 2019, and I am happily illustrating my favorite things about life and doing it full time from the comfort of my cozy home and a furry cat named Peanut. Yay art!
