Heather grew up in the countryside of Scotland, her yard backing on to several acres of managed forest and farmland. She would spend much of her time outside, looking for ‘fairy rings’ amongst the forest, watching tadpoles make the dramatic transformation to frogs and being entertained by her dog, Sam, who would relentlessly but unsuccessfully pursue the local rabbit population.
She completed her BA in Fine Art at Staffordshire University in the UK with a first class honors and went on to take part in several group and solo shows in the UK.
Now she lives in East Vancouver, keeping bees and making art.
She is a long time meditation practitioner who likes bike touring, hiking, kayaking and any other way of enjoying the dramatic and rugged beauty of BC.
