Heather is a Minneapolis/St. Paul-based mixed media artist. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Music from Gustavus Adolphus College and a second in Studio Art with an emphasis in painting from the University of Minnesota. When not in the studio she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, playing her flute, and gardening.
As an introvert and intuitive soul, my inner life often feels more real to me than the outside world. Ideas and impressions almost take on solid forms in my mind. The ways they intersect and influence one another draw me in and inspire my work. The abstract, mixed media layering I use in my creative process alternately mirrors and guides these quiet explorations. I invite the viewer to join me in these contemplative spaces where thoughts, memories, emotions, spirituality, and beliefs layer and intermingle to give inner landscapes visual form.
