Heather Jones-Bear's Profile
I have always had a need to create. Since childhood I always looked at materials with a view to “what can I make with that” “How can I turn it into something interesting or beautiful or something that I need or want”. Out of necessity, using objects and things around me from tissue paper, silver foil, old broken necklaces and gradually my mother’s old clothes from the attic I experimented to make clothing, cards, artwork and little gifts.
With no formal training, later my work grew with experience and evolved through working in the fashion industry and Interior design until eventually I ran a successful small business in soft-furnishings/interiors in London.
My passion has always been for colour and it’s intense, reactionary qualities, so with textiles, to mix and match…
