Heather's Profile

About

Oh hello there! I'm Heather Buchanan, and I make lovely things whenever I can.

I am always trying different techniques and getting excited and passionate about something new. I'll work intently on one project for a few weeks, and then need something completely different to keep my mind excited. So I've got lots of different work in both my Etsy shops, along with other projects, from murals to private commissions to gallery projects, that don't end up on Etsy.

Here are some facts about me and the world I live in:
-I'm inspired by everything old, vintage, retro, and antique.
-I eat a lot of salad.
-My spirit animal is the mighty grizzly bear.
-There is a mythical creature known as the Honesty Sheep. He turns up in strange places.
-I collect tea cups and empty frames…

I am always trying different techniques and getting excited and passionate about something new. I'll work intently on one project for a few weeks, and then need something completely different to keep my mind excited. So I've got lots of different work in both my Etsy shops, along with other projects, from murals to private commissions to gallery projects, that don't end up on Etsy.

Here are some facts about me and the world I live in:
-I'm inspired by everything old, vintage, retro, and antique.
-I eat a lot of salad.
-My spirit animal is the mighty grizzly bear.
-There is a mythical creature known as the Honesty Sheep. He turns up in strange places.
-I collect tea cups and empty frames.
-Beer is the most delicious substance my mouth has ever encountered.
-I like a hearty frolic in nature more than almost anything. Just give me a pretty mountain to climb.
-Upon writing this, I am a student. But knowing my brain, I'll forget to update this once I've graduated. So there's a chance I've got some sort of career. But probably not.
-As I write this, there's a fantastic storm outside. It's the middle of July, but the parking lot to my building is full of ice from half-melted hail. It's really quite exciting, as far as weather goes. Canada's neat in that it can be sweltering hot one moment, and then suddenly your parking lot is a hockey rink.
-Some days I'll paint for around 16 hours. Some days I will barely get in a full work day. I work in these intense bursts, then recover and let new pictures come swimming into my head.
-I write stories. These stories are mediocre and odd. According to publishers, these stories are far worse than mediocre. But we won't talk about that, or I might get sad.
-Gin comes in a close second after beer. I recently discovered the Gin Rickey, which is basically just gin and club soda and lime. It's like a Gin and Tonic without the sugar and calories, and I'm really into any sort of health food that gets you drunk.
-I own four guitars, a ukulele, a tambourine, a djembe, two recorders, a harmonica, a melodica, an air organ, a casio ML-2 keyboard, a keyboard that is a lot cooler than that last one, and a voice. Sometimes these elements come together to form the band Titmouse.
