Artist's Profile

Heather Soderberg has been sculpting since the age of 1 and selling professionally in galleries and art shows. She has co-sculpted with her partner, John Soderberg, on many commissions for the Crystal Cathedral, hospitals, corporations and private clients. Her passion is sculpting commissions to touch other’s lives on a personal level.

She is currently working on a 10-foot tall commission of Christ the Healer and has begun a larger than life-size monument of Christopher Reeve and his wife Dana to be placed at the Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Resource Center.

“The artist is fundamentally alone in the creative process, whether he/she is supported and encouraged by other artists and lovers of art, or is solitary. The inner drama, the complex ebb and flow of feelings, hints and glimpses of images and ideas, the inner drive, urges, promptings and doubts -- the often fierce, undeniable, gut-deep need to create -- are those of individual artists alone, that they must somehow deal with through visions of the beauty and torment of the world.

Artists are meant to probe heaven and hell, good and evil, beauty and ugliness -- the full dimension of life on earth, humanity's relations with itself, with nature, with God, and the universe, as their personal needs and interests dictate.”
