Heather Comparetto is a visual artist focusing on the transformative power of water on the photographic lens. A lifelong Florida resident, she holds an MFA in emerging media from the University of Central Florida.

It was during her undergraduate studies, also at the University of Central Florida, that she discovered a deep love of surrealism. Not a painter, she turned to photography as a means of evoking surrealist imagery. Taking her photography underwater only heightened the sense of surrealism in her work.

Heather’s diverse professional experience includes photojournalism, photo editing, and corporate communications, which lend to her reflections on the spirit in her fine art photography.
