At the age of 10, Heather began taking evening and weekend art classes at ACAD to expand her interest in drawing and painting.

Over the next several years Heather experimented with various art and craft mediums ranging from drawing, beading, origami, latch hook and photography to creating jewelry with Plasticine and panting ceramics. Heather has found her passion to lie in abstract painting using acrylic paints with various gel mediums. Painting has become a therapeutic experience. When Heather goes into her art studio, she leaves the world behind her and is able to paint in an environment with no rules, expectations, boundaries or judgments. This is a time for Heather to express her creativity without the constraints of living in a highly structured world. Heather enjoys using her hands as her main tool when painting and always seeks other non conventional tools to use in her art creations.

Heather decided to seriously pursue her passion for painting two years ago out of her one bedroom apartment. Since then, Heather has found a place to call her art studio which has enabled her to be more hands on; throwing paint and making a mess without the worry of damaging anything!!

In addition to painting, Heather enjoys photography; taking pictures of nature’s grace and finding the beauty in inanimate objects. Using Photoshop, Heather creates abstract pictures from her photos, paintings and imagination that are used to make greeting cards.

Heather graduated from the University of Calgary in 2004 with a degree in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies. Heather currently pursues her career within Human Services providing support and empowerment to children with disabilities and their families.
