After studying Art & Design at Croydon College specializing in Textile design, Heather then graduated in Fine Art at Central St.Martins College of Art & Design, London in 2003.
She says of her artwork "The studies in textile design fueled my fascination for experimentation with mixed media. Manipulating materials to create unusual effects continue to surprise and inspire me. Once the paintings begin, they develop by themselves."
"I repeatedly returned to my interest in organic forms often with familiar, subliminal references which often relate to my previous work as a health professional. Many works have integrated my love of water colour painting. I continue to experiment with new techniques creating a mixture of abstract and fantasy."
