Artist's Statement

After 17 years as an Occupational Therapist, an ex-pat spell in Australia gave Heather the chance to reawaken her passion for art. Now settled back in South Bucks, she has cultivated a new career.

 

Heather's portfolio reflects her journey with the acrylic medium - loose and interpretive scenery but direct and precise portraiture: children at play - on the beach, on the sports field or just mucking around - are the basis of many commissions. Scottish highland scenery and windblown hillsides have been a success at recent exhibitions.

2021 has seen experiments with abstraction in the studio and keeping up observation and sketching skills.

Heather offers painting classes and workshops in Stoke Poges and Chalfont St Peter, which are easily accessible from Slough, Gerrards Cross, Amersham, Beaconsfield and Uxbridge.
