“My art evolves with me and each collection is representative of my state of mind at the time that it was created. My inspirations are spontaneous and I tend to use my intuition and my instinct as guides for the direction of my art. At first glance, my collections appear as a whirlpool of darkness, purity and divinity, arbitrariness, and supremacy - all intertwined with one another. My art is indeed a rollercoaster of my life, often depicted graphically in a self-portrait configuration in order to showcase my inner thought process in a form that can be accessible and appreciated by viewers.” –Heather
Heather graduated from Colorado State University in December 1999 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Drawing and Fibers where she received the Creative and Performing Arts Award. She moved to Boston in spring of 2000 after being hired as a Flight Attendant for American Airlines. Since then she has shown in many solo and group shows in Colorado, Massachusetts, and California. Heather is a Boston Redevelopment Authority Certified Artist and in 2009 she completed the Boston Arts & Business Council Artist Professional Toolbox course. Heather’s work has consisted of drawing primarily the figure with Cattle Markers (large oil sticks used to mark livestock). She enjoys working in this medium because she can work aggressively with large expressive mark making. In 2011 Heather did a residency at the Contemporary Artist Center in New York where she began abstract drawings. Upon return to her studio she began working on a collection of abstract paintings which made her realize just how much she missed it. Since then she has continued working in abstract painting space focusing specifically on the intersection between spirituality and the state of one's mind and presence. Heather’s work is held in private collections in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Colorado, Alaska, Washington, California, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Boston’s Mayor Menino awarded one of her Buddha drawings to the Rocky Neck Art Colony in Gloucester MA.
