Born in Western Michigan, Heather was inspired by the years she spent near the water; fish have been a great inspiration and a recurring theme in her artwork. For the past 14 years Heather has lived in Arizona. She studied at Arizona State University in Art Education and Stuio Arts, specializing in Fiber Arts. Currently she is continuing her studies in Art History and Italian.
"A goal of mine was to share the knowledge and skills that have been shared with me, so that others could find the joy within themselves through art. Therefore, I taught high school art for three years. I continue to be inspired by studying other cultures past art, marine life, and color."
