'...motion [...] runs throughout Heisch’s practice: swirls appear to be tumbling through the air rather than fixed; suns move gradually through her smooth skylines rather than remaining still.' (Elephant Magazine, 2021)

She received a BA in Fine Arts from University at Potsdam, SUNY, NY (2011) and an MFA from University at Albany, SUNY, NY (2014).

Recent group shows include Romancing the Surface, curated by Loie Hollowell, GRIMM Gallery, Amsterdam (2021).
