Heather’s paintings are inspired by events in her life which affect how she sees and interprets her surroundings. Heather uses the areas around her home in Bloor West Village, her cottage in Haliburton and scenes from other travels to create paintings and invite the viewer into her world. In the fall of 2010, Heather expanded her painting studies to include Figure Drawing and Painting. Heather strives to capture not only the external human form but also the essence of the individual with the desire to inspire an emotional connection between the image and the viewer.
