Aleece Henman is a Denver raised artist, designer, and poet. She’s always had a vivid imagination and enjoyed expressing herself through many different mediums. Her mother recognized her talent at a young age and nurtured her creative spirit by crafting at home as well as exploring additional arts and crafts classes and activities. She holds a BS in Visual Communications from Westwood College. For the past few years she’s been living her dream, showing her art in local galleries. Her work is currently on display at Spectra and Mad Alchemist Tattoo Shop in Aurora. Henman’s portraiture is typically done in colored pencil and watercolor. She draws influence from a wide variety of artists, anatomical drawings, music, theater and whimsical writings. Her illustrations blossom from stories, dreams, characters, and feelings. Her style reflects her constant exploration, and growth as an artist. Henman likes to experiment with a variety of color palettes and textures, allowing her changing moods and interests to burst forth from her paintings.
“I live to see a smile, and a twinkle in people’s eyes, to bring out a childlike curiosity that makes them take a closer look at something new.”
