A Rochester, MN native who is endlessly inspired by nature’s offerings, Heather creates acrylic and mixed media paintings that are shaped by sensory experiences in our natural environment. Each piece attempts to convey how these experiences make her feel, while also encouraging the viewer to slow down and indulge in calming moments.
Her landscapes are slightly impressionistic, often utilizing soft color and embellished with hand-stitched threads to add texture and interest. Her abstract paintings hold the memory of a particular season or location and incorporate rich detail and texture. Working from both imagination and at times, reference photos, influences of work and play in Minnesota and Montana can be seen in Heather’s art.
