About Heidi

Heidi Buscher is a fourth generation kama’aina who graduated from Beloit College earning a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and journalism in 1991. Buscher received an MFA in ceramics from San Francisco State University in 2001 and has worked in media including ceramic and bronze sculpture, acrylic painting and pottery. 

Buscher returned to a vibrant art practice with a new painting series that connects us to the people and places that came before us. She interprets old Hawaiian Olelo’s (stories) that inspire each piece of art. These stories are told through a contemporary lens with vibrant colors and expressionistic mark making, that evoke a sense of nostalgia.

Heidi currently resides in Waimea, Hawai’i with her husband and two children. She is the Fine Arts Department Chair at Parker School where she runs a successful visual arts program.
