Norakiera Heiser

Oakland, CA, United States

Norakiera Heiser was born in Port Klang Malaysia and migrated back to her father's homeland of Milwaukee WI when she was a toddler. Her blue collar childhood was punctuated with trips back to the tropics to visit her maternal clan; navigating these vastly different cultural and geographical experiences has sparked a life-long interest in histories and exploring multiple perspectives. Norakiera uses abstraction to visualize difficult to describe events; her work shifts from ghostly figures to landscapes of emotion. Norakiera currently lives and works in Oakland CA, and received her BFA in painting from California College of the Arts.
