Artists You Need to Know: Heidi Antoine – California Artist Living in Psychedelia Land

img_1342

My name is Heidi Antoine and I am an artist from California. I grew up in the 90s loving everything 60s. Music is what inspires me the most, the storytelling, the fashion, the politics. The Beatles have always been my favorite band, and the psychedelic imagery they used was very inspiring. Classic films also, Alfred Hitchcock, Mae West, Marilyn Monroe, The Twilight Zone, Fantasia, Charlie and the chocolate Factory. I love strong characters and intricate plots. I want everything to be magical and an adventure every day, doesn’t everybody?

What advice would you give the teenage you?

Hold on it gets better.

One person living or dead you would hang out with for a day? What would you do?

John Lennon. We would get stoned and drink tea outside in nature and talk about art, music, politics etc. I would love to pick his brain.

What is the number one thing on your bucket list?

To see the pyramids in Egypt. There is so much history and so many unanswered questions.

How important is music in your life?

Music is everything! I listen to it when I go to sleep and play it all day long. I think it’s important to continually grow and evolve your tastes and styles and I always love discovering new bands. What I’m listening to influences what I’m creating.

Do you have a favorite animal?

I love them all! But cats, definitely cats. They all have unique personalities and individual voices. They take getting to know to earn their trust and I respect that.

Do you believe in aliens?

Yes. I think humans scare them.
