Heidi Knutson aka Adel Knutson, the Art Thief

also known as ADEL KNUTSON
also known as ADELHEID ESTHER KNUTSON
also known as HEIDE ESTHER KNUTSON
also known as HEIDI ESTHER KNUTSON

UPDATE 2011: Heidi was specifically told by Stephen Oachs that she was NOT allowed to portray her painting of his photograph on the internet anywhere. She hid it on her Flickr site... for a while... but now she's showing it again. She is also showing a portion of the painting she did of Ian Dalgleish's stolen photograh - again, against copyright laws. She has no respect for other artists or for the laws. She has been continually warned about this, and she still flaunts it. She is not sorry in the least about what she does.



UPDATE 2009: She's doing it again. See first gallery below.

2008: At least six of her paintings have been created and sold with copyrighted material (she freely admitted this, and admitted knowing it was wrong) and there may be more. The Federal Government does not take kindly to copyright infringement and making a profit from it on this scale. Neither does Revenue Canada or Universal Studios.

Total value: $10,450.00 offered/indicated for sale/sold
Total value SOLD: $5,050.00 as per Heidi Knutson's own website


COPYRIGHT LAW
The Copyright Act of Canada states that no one is allowed to "imitate or repeat the main design of the work" in any manner whatsoever.

CRIMINAL CODE OF CANADA
Part 9 322. (1) Every one commits theft who fraudulently and without colour of right takes, or fraudulently and without colour of right converts to his use or to the use of another person, anything, whether animate or inanimate..."

DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER
The Canadian law states that truths may be stated, facts may be stated. Opinions about these truths and facts may be given. That is NOT defamation.


Heidi Knutson aka Adel Knutson aka Adelheid Esther Knutson (604-796-9501 heidi.k@telus.net) stole one of my copyrighted images, painted it, portrayed it on her site as her own creation with a price of $900.00. I have attempted to come to a settlement with her but she continues to be deceitful and is now not honouring the Terms of Settlement as agreed. This is a website in her honour, chronicling all her actions, and lies. She has also admitted to stealing six other images, some from other pbase accounts, painting them, portraying them as her own creations and selling them.

She has no respect for fellow artists, namely all the great photographers who put their dedication, hard work, education and expensive equipment into acquiring beautiful images, only to have her steal them and profit from them. Heidi stated she knew it was wrong to copy and sell these images, but she did it anyway. I feel she thought she'd never get caught.

Heidi Knutson is a member of the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association and they have been advised of her stealing images and copying them. That is not allowed under the terms of Membership of the CVAA. UPDATE: Her membership has been cancelled as they cannot leave themselves open to a lawsuit.
