Bobbi Headder, Artist

About the Artist

Bobbi is an award-winning artist who has exhibited in many shows, both group and solo. She won several scholarships while attending Miami Dade Community College where she earned an Associate of Arts degree. In 1984, she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Florida International University.

When a member of the Florida Professional Artists’ Guild, Inc., Bobbi wrote and published the FPAG newsletter. She was also associated with Florida Landscape Painters and Miami Figure Painting Association. She was a member of GroveHouse Artists and painted live at Cafe Tu Tu Tangos in Coconut Grove.

Bobbi has been involved with Dade County Parks & Recreation Dept. teaching art to children after school. Bobbi is also a writer and photographs jazz musicians and events. She has been published in the Sunshine Jazz Messenger, Gold Coast Jazz Notes and the Miami Herald.

For many years Bobbi painted with only traditional materials and techniques, but it was always her nature to experiment. Along the way she enthusiastically took up a relatively new medium. Using a digital camera to gather source material, with computer as canvas and mouse as brush, in concert with a painterly sensibility and a sound grasp of design and composition she set forth on two favorite subjects: Florida flora and jazz musicians.

Bobbi paints in a naturalistic manner. And continues working with traditional materials. It is her first love and she enjoys the seductive, exhilaration of actually pushing paint around on a canvas.

Bobbi has work in numerous Florida locations including Miami, Pembroke Pines, Coconut Grove, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Orlando, Fort Meyers and Cape Coral. As well as Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania and California.

Bobbi is currently working on a series of masks to be exhibited in New Orleans. Her progress in this series can be followed at masksbybh.zdrum.com and she can be reached at bh38@zdrum.com.
