Christine Heller’s early interest in dance has led to a life long focus on the figure: figure as alter ego, guide, symbol, and source of energy at intersections of the personal / political / social. 

            Heller’s career has included installations, paintings, and large murals.  In the last three years she has completed murals in Key West FL, Denver CO, Roanoke College in Salem VA, MWP Art Museum, Utica NY and at SUNY Oneonta, NY.  Since 2012, she has been a scholar-in-residence at Roanoke College, she received a grant from the City of Denver, and she was awarded residencies at VCCA, Sculpture Space and The Studios at Key West.
