ABOUT THE ARTIST
Raised in rural Pennsylvania in the Appalachian mountains, Heather always had a love for nature as well as art. She received her undergraduate degree from East Stroudsburg University in Biology and secondary education. She taught high school science and biology for ten years before devoting her full time energy to motherhood. During these years she connected to nature regularly by developing skills of sustainability and self reliance. After more than 40 years in the rural northeast, she relocated to southwest Florida, where she began to explore the natural beauty of a subtropical climate. It was here that she began to focus on creating art. Heather creates pieces that provoke a sense of peace and positivity. Working with color palettes from nature, she aims to bring the serenity of the natural world indoors.
