Heather Maione returned to the art of portrait sculpture, having first been inspired while studying Renaissance art in Siena, Italy.

Her experience in the visual arts spans several decades. In addition to her private studio work, Heather has illustrated more than twenty-five children’s books and created her own line of greeting cards, which sold nationally.  At the beginning of her career, Heather worked as an art director for New York City advertising agencies.

“Self taught, I’ve come to embrace sculpting as my true passion. I find nothing more rewarding than to capture the essence of one’s unique personality and beauty as portrayed in the human face. My goal is to render a likeness and an energy deserving of permanence in bronze.”

Heather works out of her studios in Chappaqua, N.Y. and NYC. She is currently accepting private and public commissions.
